A 666-Character Review of ‘The Endless’
Two brothers return to the cult they escaped only to discover that the group’s beliefs may not have been all that far from the truth. The Endless covers a lot of ground as it explores human themes through an altogether otherworldly premise. It’s a strange mixture, to be sure as what starts out grounded grows increasingly surreal. It’s a floatiness countered with a convincing portrait of humanity in the face of the incredible. It isn’t without its flaws though. While tension and mystery are neatly stacked in the first two acts, the third act reveals feel a bit murky and raise questions as they answer the existing ones. All that said, it’s an engaging production with some very enjoyable cinematography and performances. For fans of Benson and Moorhead’s previous films, this isn’t one to miss.
