    This movie was of no appeal to me what-so-ever. The camera shots were terrible and I strugled to grasp the true emotions of the key characters. A wary eye should be cast over this movie.

    Almayer's Folly is not friendly terrain to traverse; like some sinister version of Proust, it is a prolonged fever dream that ultimately yields madness.

    Almayer's Folly is lush and dreamy (if not quite dreamlike), but it never feels unanchored or given to pointless meandering. However hypnotic it at times becomes, this is a sober(ing) endeavor that never strays far from its post-colonial backdrop.
