    I like the part where the cameraman moves from the back seat to the front seat of the car like a ninja. 6 years 7 months ago

    Excellent movie. You can feel the tension or something just not right until the ending discloses the dilemma. Highly recommend, leaves you thinking as the credits scroll by. 1 year 9 months ago

    Haunting and brilliantly spare. Thank goodness Netflix didn't spoil the premise of this one like they do so many movies--when the key information finally drops, it's amazing. 3 years 8 months ago
