Look gang, I know Rebecca isn’t some X-rated orgy-fest, but it is subtly horny (and in some cases not-so-subtly horny), so don’t sue me for getting hung up on the way the remake sets itself up as considerably hornier than the original. Don’t sue me for not liking it very much either – it isn’t a very good movie! My advice is this: Check out the Alfred Hitchcock masterpiece. Save yourself the boredom.
(Aside: Has Ben Wheatley really only made one or two good movies? Yes, I think so.)
My review is over at Paste Magazine.
