Misguided
3 August 2004 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

This film really hooked me at the beginning. It was beautifully shot with a great sound design. It quickly captured a wonderful dark seedy world brimming with surreal, grotesque characters. Unfortunately, it didn't have much for these

characters to do and the film quickly slid downhill. While the actress who played Nina was strong, the character was not somebody you wanted to spend time

with, particularly after a very cruel trick she plays on a blind man. She makes no attempt to solve any of the problems she has created for herself and the last act of the movie, where we are forced to delve into her madness, was tiresome and irritating. I think the director could be capable of great things given a strong script because the vision behind it was really intriguing. But Nina is not the sort of person you want to spend an hour and a half in the dark with.
