A first-time feature-film director (who's also the writer and producer) is casting the lead actress. We meet him talking to his wife about the picture and the process. We meet the actress, Sandy, negotiating with her roommate and talking by phone to her mother. Then, we watch Sandy audition for the director at the call-back session; also attending are the casting director and the production company's sycophants. The wrinkle is that the director is a homicidal misogynist, his wife is tied up and hanging from the ceiling, and Sandy has something in her purse that bodes a rocky future.Written by
Ben Affleck's debut is a piece of talent superimposed over bad execution.
The movie talks about a killer who is in search of a victim and the twist at the end makes it glitter. Poor camera work, poor editing & poor narration makes it look like an amateur film. But isn't it it?
The story is intriguing, and the lead character has some substance. Yet, it couldn't score the tag for me.
4/10 rating! Because of the dialogues and use of prose in this film made it look like a fresh written plot. But as a critic, I was disappointed. And at the same time, marvelled at the approach of the makers.
Watch it because the director is now an Oscar winner.
