This film is not for the faint of heart. There are some controversial scenes, there are also some very intense ones, that not every movie goer can handle. But those who can, can expect a great psychological thriller, with a slight science-fiction twist on it. The premise of the movie, that there are 23 identities living inside this one person, is the most intriguing part of the film. In this movie the effects of multiple personality disorder are exaggerated, but if that wasn’t the case, the movie would be significantly more boring.
From the get-go, this movie wastes no time. No exposition, just straight into the story, which I really loved. The stand out factor of this film was James McAvoy’s performance. No doubt. There are very few actors who are able to portray such a wide range of characters so well, and even fewer, who can so incredibly change characters mid-scene, while the camera is always on them. The way McAvoy changes his facial expressions to show the audience his change of identity, is almost artificial, because of how well it’s done. I can’t praise his performance enough, so it’s better if you just go and watch the movie yourself. I could go into more depth into his performance, but there’s more that this film has to offer.
The supporting cast is great, especially Anya Taylor-Joy, who gives an emotional and moving performance. This connects back to M. Night Shyamalan’s directing also stands out, and in this film, he shows some of his best work, with the help of McAvoy’s performance. The long takes with him give a sense of realism to the film. The writing of this film is solid, it gives us an insight in the topic of multiple personality disorder. It was more matching to the tone of the film and to the moments it was used for.
A complaint I have: I would have loved to see a scene, where McAvoy goes through each identity in a rapid fire manner. I feel that was a missed opportunity. Other than that, I can’t think of anything else I didn’t like. The pacing was slow, but Shyamalan made it work.
Split is a psychological thriller, with a very interesting premise, carried by an incredible performance by James McAvoy.
