Go into this spoiler free if you can. I thought the movie was going one way, but it went quite another, which was interesting. The "found footage" genre can been overdone, but this film is very clever indeed, having multiple sources of each scene being shot and seamlessly edited together. The boys were very credible and well played. It did lag a little for me in the set up. How long can you watch people watch people for? But once the mystery deepened I was hooked. I particularly liked the way the movie cut away to a more present day court room and you realise that what you are watching, other people are watching as evidence. Layer, upon layer of observation. It's quite a statement on modern-day life.
