Chad Michael Collins,
I saw this excellent Noirish comedy thriller at the Phantasmagoria festival this weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. The whole cast deliver first rate performances and the film has an excellent visual style, as well as paying generous homage to the classic thrillers of yesteryear and also very modern elements like some splendid (and justified) female nudity and mobile phone usage. The tangled plot is always intriguing and almost plays out as a jet black farce. The production design is excellent and the hotel location where most of the film plays out feels suitably claustrophobic and seedy. On a side-note it was great to see Brian Murphy back on the screen. Overall the film made for terrific viewing. Well done to everyone involved. Recommended if you want to see something a bit different with twists and turns, and laughs and scares.
