...and entirely too believable. But then, that is what makes good film noir.
There is absolutely nothing in this movie that doesn't contribute to it, from the shot via hidden cam approach, to the acting, the lighting, the casting and the score. This is simply a BRILLIANT movie.
Ten minutes into the film, I found myself repelled, yet fascinated, like a mouse before a cobra. By the time it was over, I felt like I needed a shower.
Ana Claudia Talancón (who is remarkably easy on the eyes) played her role superbly, and Colin Hanks turned in what SHOULD be an award-winning job as "Doug", the stalker. It's a shame that the little movies like this so often get overlooked.
