This is a simple film with a simple premise that becomes convoluted and loses its appeal. The hook loses most of its charm by the second act. You think you’re getting a thriller about a child bitten by a rattlesnake, and things get... complicated. This is a road film with a mysterious angle. Lots of WTF moments; some kinky shit; this film covers a lot of ground it really doesn’t need to.
This is a complicated movie with convincing actors who make you buy whatever situation they’re going through. Sadly, the script doesn’t know what story it wants to tell. It seduces you with a poignant introduction, only to deceive you with weird subplots I won’t spoil. I just couldn’t get into this. My left cerebral hemisphere just wasn’t compatible with the right one.
This is a pretentious film, and it’s hard to sit through. Every time I tried to second-guess the intrigue, I got mind fucked by a screenplay that went nowhere logical. I learned to embrace the emotional side of this story, but even that got wobbly. Whatever you think you’re getting into you’re not going to get. Rattlesnake’s best quality, it turns out, is its unpredictability.
