    Silent Night from 2021 is So Much Better
    There's a film with Keira Knightley from a few years ago set in a remote country estate in England under similar circumstances (an ecological collapse that requires voluntary human sacrifice to avoid further suffering) AND IT IS SOOOO MUCH BETTTER. The 2021 film is filled with a cast of eccentric but relatable characters. I was in tears by the end, it really touched me. Humane is literal garbage in comparison, but I am giving it a five for at least meaningfully approaching the topic of climate change collapse and the wrongs of American society.

    But three out of four characters are reprehensible monsters. The subject at hand requires a family of sociopaths and narcissists lying in wait for an inheritance from their father, who chose to sacrifice himself in old age, who must choose a "second body" when his wife absconds from the scene and violates her promise to do likewise. The most likable sibling in the bunch is the adopted one, Noah, and his worst crime is being a recovered drug addict who works at the mall, but is overall a good human being with decent morals who legitimately loved his late father. Of course, the others elect him the most expendable since he's not a blood relation and they all have grandiose narcissistic fantasies about their own importance.

    I think they should have shot Jared in the face in the first five minutes, but then there wouldn't have been a movie.

    Very bad and mediocre
    Boring and nothing new here, is just another boring family fighting against each other, im watching this everyday in my family, my mother fighting over with my dad because of her thinking he cheat on her, my sister and the psychological problems and food problems, my brother and his depression and my grandma with her dementia, my family is a mess, but we are together, that's what family do, they stick together, this movie family is just weak and immaturity that's why in proud of my family

    Sorry i needed to get this off my chest, im suffering right here, i seriously need help, any kind of help to be honest.

    Dystopian dilemmas captured in horror noir
    Acclaimed Canadian photographer (and carrier of the infamous Cronenberg gene), Caitlin Cronenberg dipped her toes into (well longer than one minute) directing with the dystopian horror noir "Humane". The film is set in a world where overpopulation requires all governments to meet a culling target and the US opted for voluntary culling against payment. A dilemma develops when through a series of events four siblings are required to decide which one of them should be "culled". Events start to play out with some very cool gore and more than decent acting. The facial expressions captured in unobtrusive detail truly enhanced the "noir quality" of the film, but certain scenes were somewhat over-the-top resulting in almost slapstick comedy. All and all an enjoyable film. 6.5/10.
