An eerie story about how far people will go to end their loneliness.
Double Born is filled with plot twists and suspenseful story-telling that is rarely achieved by any director/writer/editor - regardless the budget.
It never takes its audience for granted which is very refreshing. Randel keeps the audience guessing up until the last frame! Rare. Reminds me a little of how I felt about the Cohen brothers' first film
The mood Randel elicits stays with you long after the film is over. The cinematography and sound help set the tone that the actors run with with no hesitation.
I felt a little like I was watching an accident. I couldn't look away and I was pulled, almost against my will, into a world of wounded people trying to find some way out. Kudos to Randel and the Cast. This film deserves to be seen!
