Film Review - Sightseers


With “Down Terrace” and “Kill List,” director Ben Wheatley was striving for more of a severe atmosphere of family dysfunction and the dark unknown, creating interesting but indulgent cinema that fell short of its initial promise. “Sightseers” takes Wheatley in a distinctly broad direction, creating a pitch-black comedy that’s uproarious when it isn’t completely horrifying. It’s shocking in all the good ways, lead by two fantastic performances from Alice Lowe and Steve Oram, who capture the elusive feel of cheery malevolence early on the feature, helping to sell Wheatley’s casual atmosphere of whiplash temper down to the last gasp. “Sightseers” is a legitimate doozy.
