No you aren't alone. I also haven't seen this and it's been in my backlog for years as well.

I haven't seen it either. I've been thinking about this film all weekend. I think I may watch it.

You're thrown right into Carol's world with very little context. How long has she been going insane? Has it been days, weeks, or years? All the audience gets to see is that she lives with her sister whose relationship (probably not the first she's ever had) is vapid and based around sex (which Carol is forced to listen to night after night). Despite being quite gorgeous herself, she has never seemed to be able to settle into a relationship. Maybe she hates men, or maybe she's just so shy that she can't stand being around anybody she isn't comfortable with. In any case, Carol is losing it and when she is left alone for an extended period of time, she begins to crack (literally, in a fun way). In no way is this movie boring, you just have to look for all of the right details. Stunning performances, gripping suspense, incredible visuals, and minimalistic storytelling. A masterpiece.


I recommend the Criterion Collection blu-ray.

though, I wouldn't call it masterpiece, but an exceptionally well-made character study of a disturbed mind. 4/5
