Why does every Nikola Tesla biopic portray him as such a dark, brooding vampire? Eesh, if that's what he was like...how depressing.
For her part, Eve Hewson does Ethan no favors; she's as morbid as he is. Ironic: For a movie about power and light, this is a dang dark vehicle.
And the ending could have been really powerful and electric. Instead, it sorta ends like the juice cut off, which may be fitting—as we were both completely drained of our joyful life force by then, anyway.
