"Twisty Thriller" is right! Five men, all stripped of their short-term memory, can't figure out why they are confined to a locked-down chemical plant in the desert.
Maybe the critic who wrote (something like) '...written by the smartest kid in film school...' was right--you really need to pay attention to understand the game, the rules and the players.
And just when you believe you've figured it out, yikes, there are more twists.
Solid performances by all players, every one believable in their loss-of-memory-ness.
Several characters transformed with nice arcs that cross, mesh, repel and attract.
Smart clues dropped unexpectedly.
Plus, released to cable partners of IFC (at least in the NYC, NJ and Conn area) and is also available now with video-on-demand service. This makes this nice little film available to many, many more viewers, because the number of theatres listed across the US playing it numbers about one dozen.
