I just lost almost 2 hours of my life that I can never get back.............
Good storyline. There's always room for improvement, but otherwise it was a treat to watch. The evolution and devolution of the characters and their relationships with each other was well done.
Nuanced and emotionally tense, with a "horror" component tastefully/artistically merged into the larger plot. A treat to watch, just make sure you settle in and pay close attention.
Tense and masterfully done.
