Intriguing beginning but quickly drops in quality

As “Lou” (2022 release; 109 min) opens, we are introduced to Lou, a fifty-something “lone ranger” woman in remote Washington State (we later learn it’s the San Juan Islands). One senses she has had a complicated past. Her neighbor is Hannah, a thirty-something mother of a young daughter. A big storm is arriving soon, and before you know it, things go haywire on many different levels. At this point we are 10 min into the movie.

Couple of comments: this film is directed by noted cinematographer Anna Foerster. More importantly, the film is produced by none other than J. J. Abrams, immediately raiding expectations. Alas, it was not to be. For that, look no further than the script, which is frankly quite weak. Not only do things happen that simply make no sense, but worse, there is never any doubt how all of this is going to play out in the end. There are two bright lights: first, Allison Janney brings a tough performance in the title role. Second, the outdoor scenery (somewhere in the wild and wide open Pacific Northwest) is simply tops. It’s a shame that the rest of the production isn’t on the same high level.

“Lou” premiered on Netflix this past weekend. If you are in the mood for an “action thriller” that is fairly straight-forward if not predictable, I’d readily suggest you keep your expectations fairly low, and then draw your own conclusion.
