Young actress and dancer Inanna struggles to balance her work as a dancer with her burgeoning career as an actress all while trying to catch the eye of artist and mask maker, Derek. As things progress the play begins to reflect her inner turmoil as Inanna tries to gain control over her life, relationship, and psyche.

Honestly, I know that the above synopsis is vague but Split isn’t the easiest film to synopsize as it relies heavily on metaphor and symbolism and over explanation of the occurrences within the film wouldn’t help.

Split is one of those films that looks amazing and has good acting, but I’d be lying if I told you that I knew exactly what was going on and why. I was with the flow of the story but can’t rationalize or explain certain character actions or shifts that occur throughout the film.

Unfortunately I can’t recommend Split. Even though it looked very good and has a lot of solid filmmaking skill behind it I found nothing to pull me into this film. I know that not every film is going to have a character whom I can identify with, but if a film doesn’t even have a main character that is likeable then it becomes hard to care about the proceedings, especially when said proceedings don’t make a whole lot of sense.

 

Split arrives on DVD, Digital HD and On Demand on March 21st
