Cinematography heaven. This was great.
A daring, modern re-telling of Shadow of Doubt. I couldn't take my eyes of this film even when nothing was happening, the attention to detail is astounding and the intense sound work really perfected the pacing. Really loved this film.
Visually, musically sumptuous and excellently directed - I counted numerous points that were quite breathtaking - but the dark mood is continually underwrought by the three leads' hammy acting, a plot twist that goes too far, and the (admittedly mostly non-explicit) undercooked combination of a sexual maturity theme and thriller violence that seems like two bad movies in one, strung together where they shouldn't have. The fact that there's relatively minimal dialogue lets the film soak in a well-established mood but also holds up the rickety narrative for examination. Honestly, this could have been a much better film, and points for trying, but it doesn't work as well as it should have.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
