Sinister throughout
11 March 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The cinematography in Backgammon is beautifully done, contrasting quaint yet eerie exterior shots with intimate looks into the characters Miranda and Lucien.

The personalities of these characters perfectly balance one another as the plot delves into unsettling and unpredictable territory. Brittany Allen is wonderful as Miranda - cute, yet crazy, while Noah Silver plays a grounded, unpretentious ivy-league chap.

The music, when present, creates a mood that is introspective and peaceful, but when absent we're provided with raw dialogue that really makes the conflicts of personalities come to front.
