“Brackenmore” is a student film or is it? I can’t quite tell what I’m looking at, as it seems to be of an amazing quality. But, it lacks the narrative structure of anything other than a cinematographer reel. At best, it’s a knock-off of The Wicker Man. But, was the Wicker Man that original? How many films about weirdo Euro-rural communities do we need to see? Sophie Hopkins is amazing in the lead, but even an amazing performance can’t save a film that just drifts. Oh well, it’s still worth a viewing.
