Where To Watch Infinity Pool?
Infinity Pool is now available on Amazon Prime Video and digital platforms. The film will be available on DIsney+ on July 8th.
From director Brandon Cronenberg, Infinity Pool follows, “While staying at an isolated island resort, James (Alexander Skarsgård) and Em (Cleopatra Coleman) are enjoying a perfect vacation of pristine beaches, exceptional staff, and soaking up the sun. But guided by the seductive and mysterious Gabi (Mia Goth), they venture outside the resort grounds and find themselves in a culture filled with violence, hedonism, and untold horror. A tragic accident leaves them facing a zero-tolerance policy for a crime: either you’ll be executed, or, if you’re rich enough to afford it, you can watch yourself die instead.”
Is Infinity Pool Worth Watching?
Infinity Pool is a strong contender for the most out-of-this-world slice of resort horror to date. Infinity Pool pushes the burgeoning subgenre of “eat-the-rich” movies to greater levels. “Infinity Pool,” Brandon Cronenberg’s third film, is also the first to suggest that his talent for instilling fear is genuinely artistic rather than genetic. Anyone who believes this was created by a nepo baby is insane.
Because of its graphic violence and sexual content, the film is strongly recommended for those aged 18 and over.
According to the BFI review, a movie this technically skilled—and, in its way, gutsy—should deserve more than a Jean Brodie-ish acknowledgment that, for people who like this sort of thing, this is the sort of thing they’ll like. But in the absence of anything that might mitigate or contextualize Cronenberg’s atrocity exhibition—like, say, the affecting, complex parental themes of Possessor—it’s hard to say much else.
