Every Secret Thing
20 June 2016 | by ArgemalucoSee all my reviews

Director Amy Berg is better known for documentaries such as Deliver Us from Evil and West of Memphis; that might be the reason why her dramatic debut, Every Secret Thing, feels a bit dry and impersonal despite its sordid story and the scabrous themes it handles. Nevertheless, I found it a competent thriller with a good atmosphere and excellent performances. The chain of causes and consequences in the screenplay of Every Secret Thing is interesting, but the film lacks of the energy and expressiveness which would have made it genuinely transcendent. Berg might have feared her reserved thriller to become a sensationalist TV movie from Lifetime, and because of that, she took a special care with the level of emotions and the volume of the drama, something I truly appreciate... however, that decision slowed down the impetus of the film a bit, and the final result is an entertaining, but not completely satisfactory, movie. As for the actors, Elizabeth Banks brings a brilliant work in which she proves her big talent outside the comedy once more; Diane Lane perfectly displays a good level of threat in her character, something completely different to her usual roles as victim or comprehensive wife; Dakota Fanning is used to playing this kind of solemn and tortured characters, but that doesn't make her performance less solid; and Danielle Macdonald is an authentic revelation, simultaneously displaying tragedy, optimism and a certain cruelty. With a less shy director, Every Secret Thing could have been a much more memorable film; but in its current state, it's a decent movie which preferred narrative moderation over emotional impact. I respect that decision, but the film didn't reach the potential suggested by its disturbing story. I hope that Berg will be able to find the adequate balance between her analytical instinct and the necessary passion to bring the material to life in her next dramatic project.
