An ok flick. Lots of tension, twists and turns but needlessly complex
As long as you’re open minded it’s not bad, I enjoyed the story and how the film was set out.
ANOTHER AMAZING FILM STARRING ELIJA WOOD. OPEN WINDOWS PLAYS WITH THE VERY BONES OF FILM. AT TIMES THE FILM MORPHS INTO AN ALMOST COMPUTER LIKE FORMAT PULLING YOU THROUGH WINDOWS AND LEADING THE NARRATIVE IN AN INSPIRED AND MODERN WAY. WHATS MORE INTERESTING IS THAT THIS FILM DEFINATELY PAYS HOMAGE TO HITCHCOCKS REAR WINDOW THROUGH MIRRORING THE TRANSITIONS AND FILM TECHNIQUES. THE STORYLINE IS CONVOLUTED AND FULL OF ENIGMA TILL THE END. OPEN WINDOWS REFLECTS MODERN SOCIETIES PERVERSE RELATIONSHIP WITH TECHNOLOGY, THE INTERNET AND FAME. BOTH ME AND MRS BUG GIVE THIS 5 SKULLS. WATCH IT
interesting and unusual plot enjoyable!
Disappointing and lazy.
