The Feast movie Review
The Feast is largely focused with the chilly and confining nature of modernity. Despite being physically familiar, the fabric and feel of the house is unnerving and loud, whether it’s the ridges between bricks, the chilly smoothness of a marble countertop, or the glinting curve of a kitchen knife.
The Feast alternates between beautiful silence and startling commotion as it follows a waitress setting up for a wealthy family’s dinner party. Cadi polishes the wine glasses before being brought back to reality by the strum of an electric guitar. She then sets out the table cloth before hearing a shotgun blast through the house. The soundtrack alternates between silence and loudness in a cyclic pattern, almost like the countryside.
With disturbing performances, the ensemble meets the horrific depths of the script, which speaks highly of Lee Haven Jones’ talent considering this is his directorial debut. Cadi as a character feels aimless, but Annes Elwy is present and thrillingly concentrated throughout the film. Despite a disappointing surprise at the end, she remains a cipher for the audience, providing an easy method to witness the weird and unpleasant daily lives of the political elite.
Any film that constructs itself as an overextended metaphor will leave the audience feeling detached and disappointed. The last moments of the Feast were physically stunning but emotionally empty.
Director Lee Haven Jones masterfully employs the language of body horror to tell a story about the unavoidable agony that comes with losing our connection to nature. The protagonist, on the other hand, is visibly empty, a concrete reminder of the toll that money exacts.
