'Colossal' - Movie Review

Anne Hathaway is Gloria, an alcoholic party girl just dumped by her boyfriend. She returns to her unoccupied family home in small town New England, where she encounters her childhood friend Oscar (Jason Sudeikis). Oscar gives her a job waitressing at his bar - shortly after which Gloria notices that the gigantic monster periodically rampaging in Seoul, Korea, has the same physical tics that she does. In fact, she appears to be controlling it ...

While it's listed as a dark comedy, I was a little surprised at how dark it went - although that's tempered by the utterly absurd primary premise.

I remain unclear if this was all meant as a metaphor for alcoholism, or perhaps repressed childhood trauma, or maybe even taking responsibility for your own actions. Or it could just be a crazy movie. In any case, I enjoyed it.
