    10 Rillington Place

    ★★★

    This film is purposefully unpleasant. It's calculated to disturb the veiwer from the cinematographies color pallete, the deranged acting and the morbid crimes.

    I love a film that starts with a quote from Edgar Allen Poe (John Carpenters The Fog had the exact same one at the beginning).

    There are so many small details that make me wonder, little hints that lead to a great amount of possibilities.

    Like Rashomon, it is for the audience to individually decide. This is the same storytelling perspective…
