The ‘Cure For Wellness’ Is A Big-Budget Oddity (Movie Review)

I would like to propose something.  Many will argue how A Cure for Wellness has few tricks up its sleeves that audiences have not seen before. What if director Gore Verbinski knows that as well? Fitting in the same league as gorgeously designed, but narratively challenged films such as Shutter Island and Crimson Peak, A […]
