Written and directed by newcomer Sean Durkin and starring a shockingly good Elizabeth Olsen, Martha Marcy May Marlene plunges viewers so fully into the experience of post-traumatic stress disorder (as experienced by a sex-cult escapee), it’s almost exasperating. But no one said processing PTSD was entertaining, and the film’s itchy real-time stasis is offset by gracefully deployed flashbacks to the quietly insane and violent world our heroine is fleeing. It all adds up to a quiet stunner of an ending that feels like the start of a whole other film. Go see it. (See Movie Times)
