Vivarium (2019)

dir. Lorcan Finnegan. Imogen Poots and Jesse Eisenberg, who previously starred together in the excellent black comedy THE ART OF SELF-DEFENSE (2019), play a couple looking for a house, when they become involved in a ‘Black Mirror’ or ‘The Twilight Zone’ type mysterious drama. The core concept becomes pretty tiresome pretty quickly, and feels like a short film stretched out to a feature. The art style however is extraordinary. Many shots look like Edward Hopper or René Magritte paintings.
