Good movie
Verified purchase
Overall a very solid unique thought-provoking dark comedy

If you’re looking for a main stream movie this is not for you but if you want something unique, thought-provoking, dark comedy, and at some points just utterly strange then watch this movie

I have no idea what this movie is about. they wasted an hour of my life ranting about a dead dog that had nothing to do with anything. then it's suddenly a dead person with no set up, no explanation, no death scene, no what's happening, it's complete nonsense rambling. complete waste of time and money.

Entertaining black comedy. Great cast, fine writing and a creative script.

See above. Enough said. Worth watching if you are tired of horrendous action and comic character films, or worse films that tell you how you must think. You know the typical crap that Hollywood spews like vomit. Black Pond was a respite from all that crap.

This is a dark comedy, not drama
Verified purchase
This is a funny, mockumentary-style movie that will appeal to some; others, not so much. It's a matter of taste. I got a kick out of it, although there are a couple of plot points that seem a bit blurred. Low key and clever.

Quirky Non-Murder
Verified purchase
It sounded like it should be a good mystery. There was no mystery. Filmed in a TV interview show style - like "Dateline". Interview then re-enactment, only in this case we saw what happened. I wouldn't call this English family eccentric. They seemed more quirky, self-centered, not terribly cognizant and caught off-guard taking in a friendly stranger. The dog was the only normal one and he had 3 legs. And, yes, they do get accused of murdering the stranger, which they didn't do. Guilty of culpable stupidity. I don't know that I'd watch it again, but it was droll and I don't begrudge the time.

Arthouse Snob Alert!!!!
Verified purchase
If you're prone to posturing at galleries and speaking in disconnected buzz words and conjecture while wearing a pretentious hat - this "film" is for you.

Boring unlikeable characters
Verified purchase
I got as far as the dog's funeral and I couldn't take it anymore. If I could have I would have lined them all up and slapped them into next year.
