Editor's Note
An escaped cult member experiences paranoia and isolation while attempting to start a new life with her sister's family. Try as Martha might to blend into her new upper-middle-class surroundings, she can't help but be haunted by nightmares of the time she spent under the control of a malevolent cult leader, or the fear that the group is watching her every move and awaiting the perfect moment to take their revenge.

Expert Review Martha Marcy May Marlene - Blu-Ray DVD Review
By: Luigi Bastardo Blogcritics.org Reviews

With a title like Martha Marcy May Marlene, you half expect this indie flick to be about some backwoods lass in cutoffs and a t-shirt. And you would only be about half right in that assumption. The low-key independent film — which is marketed on the backside of the cover as a “gripping psychological thriller,” though I think it is more accurate description would be “a boring infuriating drama” — brings us the account of a lost soul named Martha (Elizabeth Olsen, the other “other” Olsen sister, in her feature film debut), who, at the beginning of our tale, escapes from the confines of a rural cult commune, and is picked up by her sister, Lucy (Sarah Paulson)....read the full review

Professional Reviews

Box Office
4.5 stars out of 5 -- "MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE enters so richly into psychological horror it recalls those disturbing dramatizations of Jonestown that were big on TV in the '80s." 09/12/2011

New York Times
"[An] impressively self-assured debut feature....Martha is played by Elizabeth Olsen, a very pretty actress whose on-camera presence is at once vivid and interestingly blurred." 10/21/2011

Entertainment Weekly
"[An] undeniably intriguing psychological drama....[Olsen] carries the story with authority, both emotionally and physically." -- Grade: B 11/04/2011

Los Angeles Times
"[A] wonderfully difficult film....An existential thriller about identity and just how tenuous a grasp we have on who we really are." 10/21/2011

Movieline
"Olsen's performance is restrained but not tentative; you could say the same for the movie around it." 10/18/2011

Rolling Stone
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[I]t's Olsen, as a damaged soul clinging to shifting ground, who makes this spellbinder impossible to shake." 11/10/2011

Film Comment
"MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE harkens back to Pasolini's notion of the cinema of poetry -- and achieves it beautifully." 09/01/2011

USA Today
"Without resorting to anything overtly spooky, MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE is a truly haunting tale reinforcing the notion that nothing is more terrifying than fear itself." 10/28/2011

Washington Post
3 stars out of 4 -- "Elizabeth Olsen delivers an utterly transfixing turn as the title character of this chilling psychological thriller..." 10/28/2011

Total Film

Uncut
4 stars out of 5 -- "Durkin delivers an accomplished, disturbing drama, that at times feels like a horror movie." 03/01/2012

Sight and Sound
"[Y]ou'll be haunted and disturbed by a film that seeps into your consciousness on a slow drip-feed and then refuses to let go." 03/01/2012
