Sodium Party is an Irish arthouse drama with some suspense elements.
The narrative plays with stream-of-consciousness storytelling a lot and non sequitur imagery a bit. The director switches p-o-vs often between reality and the protagonist's troubled mind. Slaine Kelly does an outstanding job as the protagonist, and her supporting cast does an excellent job supporting her.
There are motifs throughout the tale. Enjoy noticing and analyzing them. There is a well-selected soundtrack that offers beautiful and discordant music when respectively appropriate. Sex and violence can be attractive cheap thrills in any movie advertised as a thriller (such as Sodium Party is) However, I compliment how the director handles this text's sex and violence very well and very subtly. The movie has admirable style. If you encounter Sodium Party (per Amazon suggestion perhaps), perhaps watch it. The film is engaging and interesting.
This is the kind of movie I'd have considered brilliant when I was younger. It has the kind of abstract nihilistic/intelligentsia flavor to it that appeals to a young person just beginning his or her long philosophic journey. But I think most adults will find the film less insipring. In short, a girl/woman suffers trauma and experiences or has visions of multiple lives. Narration from a story book seems to reinforce the fact that the main character is not thinking straight, but the film's message of "life's tough and full of mysteries, round and round we go," will probably seem less insightful to an older audience. The film might have been edgier absent the piano music.
I believe I was the second viewer of the film on Amazon Instant. Lovely and amazing cinematography (a little bit of Lasse Hoile influence thankfully, perhaps?) and for sure a quirky story. Nice to see many location spots so familiar to my own childhood growing up in Dublin. I am unsure what I was expecting and received....yet, I believe if I still think of the film over the next 3-4 days then I shall move from 4* to 5*.... for that's is my own success meter of the screen. Good luck with filming more!.
