It is consistently frustrating in the mystery genre that one has to watch all the way to the end before realizing they are wasting their time. It is particularly frustrating in films like this one that do a decent job of building suspense and getting you ready for the big pay off at the end when the end is a complete non-event. I don't want to give it away so all I can say is that a surprise ending isn't really a surprise when the murderer has never been mentioned in the film at all until the last two minutes. Who cares? All the suspense is wasted. All the human drama lost. It's a cheap way to end a mystery and it happens all too often. Frustrating. Ok, rant over.
