| Pretty but difficult
This is a bleak movie. It is set on a gorgeous island that contrasts with the rather dark hearts of the characters.

These are not likable characters but they are all quite attractive and flawlessly dressed. Really, the wardrobe is the biggest star here. Charlotte Rampling is exquisitely stunning.

I got frustrated watching the rich white people idle about always drinking while treating the other two men as lessers. It does take a quick turn but this brings down the vibe even more.

My five stars are for the wardrobe, the beauty of Rampling and the island, and the creepy curiosity that is O'Toole. The director may have hit the mark too well in capturing the essence of selfish, entitled people and survival.
