Really interesting setting, and some good acting, but the plot was severely lacking and the ending didn't hold together.
Really well done atmospheric film that is slight thriller and horror touched with an other worldly feel.
Surreal atmosphere with some lovely camerawork.
I absolutely loved this film. Its unsettling and surreal tone paired with some great performances (especially Matt Smith) made up for the thin narrative. I can already see a lot of people calling it slow or boring but i think they'd be missing the point. This is an overly stylized, dark fairy tale with a neon halo which perfectly paints the films tone of desperation and hope with its dystopian brush.
Loved this movie!!!!
