Warning: Major The Perfection spoilers ahead. We’re guessing that’s why you clicked on the article?, Netflix’s new horror-thriller starring and Logan Browning, is a whirlwind of plot twists, body horror, and overall WTF-ery, which makes it right up Netflix’s alley. The film, from Cool Blue director Richard Shepard, made a splash at Fantastic Fest in Austin last fall, and was snatched up by the streaming service shortly after.No matter what you think The Perfection is about, you’re probably wrong. This is especially true if you watched the, and remains true even an hour into the film.
Twice, Shepard literally “rewinds the tape” to reveal that, actually, this is what really happened. Basically, The Perfection is about a gifted cellist named Charlotte (Willimas) who was forced to leave her prestigious music conservatory when her mother fell ill. Now that her mother has died, she wants to return. When she visits her old mentor, Anton (Steven Weber) she discovers he’s found a new favorite student named Lizzie (Browning). The girls fall into a sexual relationship that is soon plagued by horrors, which is driven by jealousy on Charlotte’s part—or so we think at first.If you reached the end of the film, we’re guessing you might have a few questions. We’ll do our best to clear things up. WHAT IS THE PERFECTION PLOT TWIST?There are three big plot twists in this film.
The Cohen brothers’ 2007 film No Country for Old Men is not your typical Western: the hero doesn’t win, or even survive, the villain gets away, and the ending isn’t a shootout but rather a slow, calm, monologue by a character who was the least involved of the three main characters.
The first comes after a particularly disturbing scene in which Lizzie gets sick while she and Charlotte are on a bus in middle-of-nowhere China. Lizzie’s throwing up maggots, which quickly escalates to bugs crawling out of her mouth and hand. Charlotte’s been trying to help, but after she, uh, pulls a cleaver out of her jacket and encourages Lizzie to chop off her own hand, the audience starts to suspect foul play. In the first rewind of the movie, it’s revealed that Charlotte drugged Lizzie, and the bugs were all a hallucination.
The hand-chopping-off was real, though.The second big twist in the film comes 30 minutes later when Charlotte reveals that the cellist instructor, Anton, raped her as a child. Apparently, this is his twisted way of motivating his students to achieve “perfection.” The reason, Charlotte says, she forced Lizzie to chop off her own hand was because it was the only way to save her from the cellist sex cult.The third and final twist of the film is that, though the audience—and Anton—initially thinks that Lizzie is mad at Charlotte for tearing her life away, she is actually secretly grateful. Lizzie has supposedly “kidnapped” Charlotte and brought her to Anton as a ticket back into the music school, but at the last second, Lizzie double-crosses Anton and teams up with Charlotte. HOW DOES THE PERFECTION END?After it’s revealed that Charlotte and Lizzie are working together, the two women enter Anton’s study to, well, fuck him up. Deuce Mobb’s “It’s On,” sets the mood, and then Charlotte and Lizzie take some kitchen knives and go at it. Lizzie gets the first stab, with a cleaver (possibly the same one that Charlotte handed her earlier?). Then Charlotte and Anton wrestle for the knife, and Charlotte ends up with the entire length of her forearm sliced open.
Lizzie picks up the metal fireplace poker and bashes Anton’s face in. You may think he’s dead, but the final shot of the film reveals otherwise: Charlotte and Lizzie, each with an injured hand, sit at the cello as “one” cellist and play for a mutilated but still-alive Anton, who has had all of his arms and legs chopped off. Photo: Netflix WHO DIES IN THE PERFECTION? DOES ALLISON WILLIAMS DIE IN THE PERFECTION? DOES LOGAN BROWNING DIE IN THE PERFECTION?Neither Allison Williams’s character nor Logan Browning’s character die in this film, though they do get violently beaten. Anton, their abuser, also does not die, but he definitely suffers. The only people who die are another music professor named Paloma (Alaina Huffman), and a few of Anton’s butlers.
DOES THE PERFECTION ENDING MAKE SENSE?In my professional opinion, no, not really! Surely there could have been a better way for Charlotte to “save” Lizzie other than chopping off her hand, right? It’s not just about the cello, think of all the things that are going to suck for Lizzie now: Texting, typing, carrying the large drink that comes included in your Taco Bell meal the list is endless.
Charlotte claims this was the only way to break Lizzie free of the “brainwashing,” but, c’mon. Hasn’t anyone heard of therapy? Trending Now.This story has been shared 3,875 times.
