It's all fine and good until that shift, then we get something fun and special. Definitely one of the more surprising third acts of the year.
A slow and methodical drama that is always hinting of something just below the surface. The film plays everything close to the vest, where the two leads are abundantly cautious, but with careful pacing, the reasoning slowly begins bubbling up. Because of this methodical carefulness, it can at times come across perhaps too indulgent with its secret, but at others it is used in such a sparing way that it comes across as though the directors did not wish to…
I liked this one quite a bit. The concept is really fun, and how it unfolds throughout is always smart and even at times subtle, which is very welcome. I was impressed with the acting and direction, which are both pretty great, and the music, man, the music. It's a mix of John Carpenter synth and the composer's other work, Fez, put together for some incredible style that I can't wait to listen to again. I look forward to watching this one again, and really recommend it.
