Initial comments or polygon impression to the new film by Alex Garland It’s being described as a ” men are calling it a primal nightMare”

Rory Kinnear and Jessie Buckley received high marks from critics for their roles in the film.

Men, the next film from filmmaker Alex Garland, has received its initial reviews. In the new folk horror, Jessie Buckley plays Harper, a young woman who has lost her husband and travels on vacation alone herself in the English countryside (Paapa Essiedu). But she discovers that she is being followed about by a man (Rory Kinnear), whose face she always sees. Garland previously helmed the films Ex Machina and Annihilation, and his newest film looks to just crank up the craziness in comparison to his earlier works.

The news editor for Slash Film, Hoai-Tran Bui, tweeted: “MEN is both Alex Garland’s oddest and most overtly horrific film. A bizarre folk horror movie that begins as a tense thriller about a house invasion and only gets stranger (and gorier) from there. I adored it, The audience will abhor it!”Kimber Myers, a critic, stated: “MEN by Alex Garland is a primitive nightmare. While commenting on the regular horrors that males cause to women, it lives in the fantastical and genuinely bizarre. I can’t stop thinking about it.”

“Always been a Rory Kinnear fan but what he accomplishes in Alex Garland’s MEN – portraying roughly 500 parts (slight exaggeration), all spooky or unpleasant in their own way – is next level,” tweeted Yahoo Entertainment journalist Kevin Polowy.Tasha Robinson, an editor at Polygon for cinema and streaming, said: “Even more than ANNIHILATION or EX MACHINA, Alex Garland’s MEN is likely to spark discussion, but I predict there will be considerably less consensus on what exactly is happening. It’s really intense, opaque, difficult, and visceral. At the very least, it will enrage people.”

Editor-in-chief of Next Best Picture Matt Neglia stated: “Because of Rory Kinnear’s versatility, Alex Garland’s MEN is not just psychologically disturbing but also funnier than anticipated. Jessie Buckley never ceases to astound. A brilliantly produced, thematically rich film with an amazing climax. There is a lot to take in from just one viewing.”

Men will have its world debut at the Cannes Film Festival before making its way to theatres on May 20 in the US and June 1 in the UK. While we wait, add our selections of the other forthcoming movies to look forward to in 2022 and beyond to your watch list.
