Amazing how this got from script to screen - the real mystery of the film.
An interesting film because of its visual style. The acting was all good, I thought. The setup was better than the actual ending, unfortunately. Good ending though.
Take out your mama and the trash... Ohhh throw this in the bin before doing so.
Having never seen a movie shot in this 'windowed' style before, I expected nothing going in and I was supremely enthralled throughout. Like a carnival ride, thrills with an undercurrent of unease. Raved about it to friends. I now own it on BR.
