Review - Final Girl

Attention rookie filmmakers: Lars von Trier is not a role model.   The story might have worked if not for some insanely heavy-handed direction by first-timer Tyler Shields. A young woman (Abigail Breslin) trained as a vigilante takes on a group of wealthy brats who murder girls for fun. The plot had promise, but it’s swiftly undone by self-conscious cinematography and melodramatic lighting. The result plays like a Halloween concept edition of Vogue, and that isn’t conducive to good storytelling. See if desperate.
