I saw the movie a couple of months ago, without even knowing what it was about, or even watching the trailer. And it sucked me in in the first five minutes, it felt like a modern Noir.

bloodclay says:

Awesome review! I’m glad you liked it, I saw it a couple of weeks ago and it has to be the best thriller I’ve seen all year. So good, I’ve actually got a review coming up for it. But anyway, great video!

OnePandaMan says:

wow just subscribed love the reviews

Murray Reid says:

It is actually my second favourite film this year, so far. I tell all my friends about it when we talk about our favourite film this year and they are just like “what the fuck is that” lol. Really under-rated movie, needs more attention.

Great Review! this is such an underrated movie… i actually had to buy it on blu ray, they’re never releasing it in my country, i got really surprised by this film, as much as i liked Mud (also kinda underrated).
Sorry for my english.
Like! 😉

Thanks for reviewing this!

Thurgor Supreme says:

I was genuinely surprised by this movie. I thought it was going to be another wasted night on Netflix with some generic thriller, but it was actually really good. I wish I could wash my memory just to watch it again.

Siem Bacon says:

Great review! Just watched this movie today and was blown away. Definitely an intense ride. I also noticed those DARK Comedic moments-thanks for pointing it out. An awesome climax/ending as well

Just watched it. It is a very well crafted and brilliantly directed piece of work. This film will probably be in my Top 10 of the year.

Great review!  Been looking forward to this since hearing about it during it’s initial release! It came out to buy in the UK on Monday…think I might be making a purchase tomorrow : )

It reminded me of Cold in July and No Country for Old Man.
