“Split” is a pretty crazy movie. It feels like a mix between indie horror and performance art. The lead works as a stripper, while also trying to land acting jobs. She becomes obsessed with a mask maker who creates utter works of art. Little by little, she starts slipping out of that healthy mental coil that keeps people from mutilating themselves. While I don’t think the film has really hit me yet, I remain fascinated after watching it twice in the last few days. This isn’t something to easily dismiss, but it’s going to turn off large chunks of viewers. So, give it a chance with people willing to dig.
