The perfect misfit.

by Venessa on 1/17/2014

A perfect choice of casting, a reasonably believable plotline, & a simplistic approach make this movie about an outcast woman with a doll for a best friend a movie that has been my favorite for years. Read More

Editors Note
Note As a child, May (Angela Bettis) had a lazy eye and had to wear a patch, which kept other children from befriending her. Her mother gave her a handmade doll, which became her only companion. Now, as a young adult, the doll is still May's only friend. But when she meets Adam (Jeremy Sisto) at a coffee shop and feels a strong attraction toward him, she tries to overcome her shyness and pursue him. When he ends their very brief relationship, however, it cements May's belief that no person is entirely good--only PARTS of them are good--and she decides to put that concept into frightening practice. A bizarre, darkly comic, and bloody horror treat, MAY is a strikingly original directorial debut from Lucky McKee.
Chicago Sun-Times "...MAY is a horror film and something more and deeper, something disturbing and oddly moving..." 06/06/2003 p.27
Entertainment Weekly "...[MAY] taps into a furious atavistic energy that reflects well on the filmmaker and his fully committed cast..." 06/20/2003 p.56
Los Angeles Times "...McKee places extraordinary demands on Bettis, who proves to be as rigorous and imaginative as her director..." 06/20/2003 p.C8
Movieline's Hollywood Life "...Writer-director Lucky McKee's script is surprisingly nuanced..." 07/01/2003 p.120

Review There are so many bad horror movies. A good one is incredibly hard to make. It has to feel a fundamental sympathy for its monster, as movies as different as Frankenstein, Carrie and The Silence of the Lambs did. It has to see that they suffer, too. The crimes of too many horror monsters seem to be for their own entertainment, or ours. In the best horror movies, the crimes are inescapable, and the monsters are driven toward them by the merciless urgency of their natures.

Review With pitch-dark humor, writer-director Lucky McKee reveals just how extreme the reaction to life's injustices can be in an individual as fragile as May, who places all her hopes for love and happiness on the success of her corrective contact lens. May unfolds with the creepy elegance and carefully calibrated precision of a Dario Argento horror film. It is a stylized work of unflinching control and discipline, reflecting an artistic maturity unusual in a first film.
