Very Subtle
15 June 2019 | by visorman3See all my reviews

Very well done Film without a doubt , however I think they should find a new Title. American Woman used up and storyline too. It is almost as if we as a society are expected to accept the gruesome crime depicted (very subtle at least) as the norm. Granted the Fish wraps and Tv Series about missing people etc abide, just seems overdone. That said the characters click and develop nicely. See if you are in to DRAMAS Musical Score average ?
