Editorial Reviews

Award-Winning Chilean director, Sebastián Silva, invites you on this thrilling journey to the deepest reaches of your darkest fears. In a foreign country, far from home, Alicia (Juno Temple) arrives in South America to vacation with her cousin, Sarah (Emily Browning). When Sarah is suddenly called away, Alicia is stuck on a remote island off Chile with three of Sarah’s friends, including Barbara (Catalina Sandino Moreno) and Brink (Michael Cera), an American exchange student with a sadistic streak. Bewildered, frightened, and unable to sleep, Alicia’s reality becomes a nightmare from which there is no waking. Ancient indigenous rites, disturbing animal behavior, and captivating hypnotic trances come together in an intense exploration into the darkest corners.. when the games go too far, reality unravels with astonishing and deadly consequences.

Sorta interesting sorta dull drama about an American (Juno Temple) on vacation in Chile to visit her cousin who is a student down there. While she and her cousin and her cousin's friends are heading out of town to a remote house the cousin gets a call and finds out she has to go back to school to take an exam, leaving the fragile American tourist in the company of people she doesn't know who are mostly speaking a language she doesn't understand. Slowly she begins to lose her mind--or so it seems. Juno Temple is always watchable in anything, even movies that aren't very good (I'm talking about you The Brass Teapot), and she gives a focused, extremely intense performance here even though it's frequently hard to figure out what's wrong with her and why she's acting the way she is. Michael Cera plays a thoroughly obnoxious American along with the rest who gets under the lead character's skin in a very bad way--at one point she nearly shoots him while he's sleeping, which is almost understandable. Based on reviews I've read it sounds like Michael Cera played almost the same exact character in Crystal Fairy, which was shot back to back with this film by the same director. This is definitely an art-house film that requires a fair amount of viewer patience. Anyone expecting a thriller (which is what the trailer suggested) will be extremely disappointed.

"She's not a bad person, I know her, she just needs a doctor for her hand." Alicia (Temple) is a young woman travels to Chile to visit her cousin and her friends. While there the friends begin to make her feel uncomfortable and she wants nothing more then to leave. What starts off as a fun vacation for her soon starts to unravel and becomes something out of a nightmare, for everyone. I will admit that I was kind of looking forward to this mainly for the fact that it looked like Michael Cera was playing a creepy bad guy. Without ruining anything he's not a bad guy but this is a very different part for him. I have to say that Juno Temple was great in this and should get some type of award. As far as the movie, from the opening shot the movie made you feel a little uncomfortable and never really let up at all. The camera work and the acting really leaves you feeling unable to relax and because of that the movie reaches a level of creepiness I wasn't ready for. Watching Temple start to unravel is mesmerizing and when the end finally comes you are left stunned and not sure what to make of what you just saw. A movie that leaves you thinking and wondering to me is the sign of a good movie. Overall, a movie that really comes out of nowhere and makes you feel uncomfortable the whole time, which in this case is a good thing. I give it a B+.

Not really what I expected based on the trailer. It's less of a cheap thriller and more of an unsettling exploration of how those with power and ability casually behave toward those who are powerless, weak or vulnerable and the necessity for the latter to be able to process and deal (if possible). I just watched it but I want to watch it again. The characters are multidimensional and the acting is great.
Michael Cera playing someone totally unlike how we're used to seeing him was a big draw for me, and he did it very well. It's unfortunate if people miss out because they can't see past his name to actually watch the movie.

It's a bit slower paced than I expected but really worth watching with a great cast and interesting premise.

I'm always on the lookout for original cinema and recently encountered this little gem. Good movies are those that you think about days and weeks after watching them. How many times has some big movie washed over you eyes and a few days later you wonder, did I see that movie or not? Face it, most films are entirely forgettable. "Magic Magic" is certainly not one of those. Not knowing much of anything about the plot of the film, I sat down to watch and immediately it grabbed my attention. There is a shot near the beginning when the characters are seen for the first time. But we don't see their faces, we see their midsections. Knowing what I know about the conventions of film making, I was taken aback and thought, "this film might be interesting". And man... was it ever.

A girl goes to Chile to visit her cousin. She meets her cousin's friends and gets stuck with them for a couple of days until her cousin comes back from the city to be part of the group. Every character is portrayed in this off-kilter manner that makes them seem like raving psychopaths. At first we sympathize with the main character because she's stuck with these creeps but slowly we the audience begin to suspect that the main character herself may be completely insane.

This is a dark film, a deeply unnerving portrayal of mental illness and subjective states. It seemed a little bit David Lynch at times. In other instances, it felt like a straight up horror film but without any of the horror conventions. There are no serial killers or monsters just a journey through a person's interior madness. The most innocuous situations like petting a dog, going for a car ride, sleeping alone in your room, playing games with friends, everything feels like a Kafka nightmare.
