Pretty but empty
12 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

The atmosphere created is dark and tense.

Many disturbing images, moody lighting, and questionable practices are in evidence.

We're set up with a strange scenario, ripe with potential for terrible things to happen.

Who is bad? Who is good? Who will suffer? Actually, will anyone not suffer? And why would anyone live in these conditions, let alone commit horrible acts to maintain this "living death" of an existence? The answer? Nope. Nothing ever happens that makes any sense out of any of the events. Just a series of unpleasant acts, building towards nothing.

So, it looked good. The acting was good. But to what point?
