small film, big thrill
Don’t watch the trailer. Don’t read the synopsis. Just download and press play. Nothing is wasted in this perfect little thriller that slowly but steadily doles out the plot, saying very little but revealing everything, piece by piece. Superb writing and directing build (and build) tension in a story that stands on its own but could easily be one part of a much longer picture. Excellent!
Not Favored to Win the Oscar, BUT IT SHOULD
I agree with the other reviewer. Go in knowing nothing, like I did, and you will not be disappointed. Evidence is given to you bit by bit and the the emotion and tension slowly and subtly builds until you’re on the edge of your seat, for lack of a better term. I don’t think I’ve been more scared of a character in a film before even seeing him on screen. Ever. Period. See this film.
This should've won the Oscar
Alas, people are more drawn by overly sentimental stories and famous actors rather than what is best. This movie is intense, subtle and very well edited with great performances and a brilliant usage of build up over the short running time. This is an incredible film made for the short film style.
