Colossal“Part giant-monster movie, part romantic comedy, yet 100 percent original, Colossal marks a welcome return to form for Spanish director Nacho Vigalondo. It’s the most satisfying and innovative film he’s made since his 2007 feature debut, Timecrimes… Colossal uses the kaiju genre to explore the addictive and self-destructive behavior of Gloria (Anne Hathaway), a Manhattan party girl who escapes to her childhood suburb after her latest all-night binge proves to be the last straw for her uptight boyfriend. She reconnects with Oscar (Sudeikis), a school friend who’s now the boozing owner of a local dive bar and still harbors a crush on her. Gloria slips back into her old habits and, after one blacked-out night, awakens to the news that a giant reptilian monster has destroyed part of Seoul. How this connects to Gloria and Oscar is best left to the movie to reveal, but it’s only the beginning of a series of unexpected surprises within this highly inventive, genre-mixing film… It’s a wonderful twist on the genre, and a surprisingly touching take on female self-empowerment and overcoming one’s worst addictions.”—Marc Walkow, Film Comment. “Colossal is one of those movies with the amount of creativity that some directors never produce in their whole lives. Fans of seeing films that are like never before should seek it out.”—RogerEbert.com
