    This was such a weird, unexpectedly dark movie. I did not see that change in tone coming at all, not from trailers, not from how the movie was progressing. It has scenes that are emotionally uncomfortable to watch which makes them really great, because a movie that can make me have this type of a visceral emotional reaction to a scene is doing its job correctly.
    I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to watch something off the beaten path.

    Colossal is one of the most interesting giant monster movies you're likely to see because while kaiju and mecha indeed threaten the city of Seoul, the film is really an exploration of toxic relationships and how they either release our inner monsters, or else make us accept monstrousness in our lives. Anne Hathaway has a special connection to the lead kaiju in Colossal that might well make her take back control of her life (though I think her alcoholism is handled realistically and there are no easy movie outs), while Jason Sudeikis, playing her only lifeline when she goes back to her home town, may prove to be an illusory shelter. Director Nacho Vigalondo finds a way to move from comedy to weird sci-fi to dark drama effortlessly, and his images of toxicity, while not necessarily subtle, are on point and sensitive. A quirky gem. Don't want to say too much because part of its effectiveness is in its ability to surprise. 1 year 10 months ago
