This one is strange.
6 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

Prepare to be perplexed. I don't know what I watched, but it was well played. I may have to re-watch it a couple of times to bend my mind around what is happening in the story. It's surely confounding, but it doesn't feel like a mind-trip. It nags on me as if, perhaps, I wasn't following closely enough and missed important plot artifacts.

This one firmly classifies as a psychological thriller, it is far more cerebral than action-oriented and it's not suited for lazy popcorn viewing. It's strongly atmospheric and leads the viewer questioning what is real, imaginary or a dream. The film nods at several interpretations of events.

The run time seems short, and I've read elsewhere online that this movie is based off of a short film, a possibility that does makes sense. One element I found distracting is how much Pettyfer resembles Ryan Phillipe both in appearance and mannerism, it's like Phillipe was deliberately channeled.

I may change my rating following subsequent viewing. I suggest watching a trailer or two before deciding if this film thrills you or kills you.
