Diamonds. Minimalistic filmmaking that pushes fear through stratified narrative. The stage is set in 15min and the rest is the real time chase. One hour. The acts of brutality are made vivid by the lack of sound effects. You have the expectation and all you are left with is the visual or the threat of it in voice and a cut off shot. Extremely effective. Low light and unbalance composition with the stark contrast of the world outside the bottle, nail film noir at its core.
The cast on this did a phenomenal job-- MacDonald was menancing as savage veneered in civility. Robbins plays a likable con seemingly trapped by his own circumstance where ethics are as mutable as survival. Palmer was the glue that held the entire thing together. What I really enjoyed was her ability to demonstrate the panic of unanticipated stakes and shoulder the character through till she meets herself in the mirror again. The entire thing makes you want to watch it one more time for the detail you missed. Great, great job.
Cold Blooded Best Movie of 2013
This show is Amazing. Zoie Palmer is Outstanding and riveting as Frances. I watched it a film festival and have been waiting patiently to have it come to the US. If you want to watch a great show then this is the one you should buy or rent. However I believe once you watch it you'll want to own it so you can revisit it over and over again.
