i’m sorry but letterboxd you are SLEEPING on this gem… a phenomenal lead performance by Maika Monroe coupled with Okuno’s lush, gorgeous, lingering direction makes for a slow, simmering, dark thriller. i felt on edge but never like the film was edging—it didn’t tease some sinister force or pull a fast bait-and-switch. maybe it’s even got some detective chops underneath its suspense surface. best of all nothing over stays its welcome—not the runtime, not the story, not the mystery. it arrives at its conclusion with devastating certainty not a second too soon or too late
