What can I say...
2 May 2012 | by nrkist2424See all my reviews

Lots of attention to framing and setting up the tension. Very Lynchian in it's oddness and almost slapsticky change-ups. Reminds one of Twin Peaks. This part of the film works. The actors deserve some note for quality performances.

What doesn't work is the story. It's a mess...and it's stupid. You will hang on for the clever reveal that is never forthcoming. You wait 90 minutes for essentially a 'just because/contrivance for contrivance sake' explanation which does not pay-off whatsoever. The epilogue is meaningless and absurd as well.

Engaging cinematography, good acting, nonsense story. I personally detest slow burns that tease a twisty reveal and fail to deliver. Despite the good production and skillful execution, at the end of the day your 90 minutes are wasted.
