Well worth a look
22 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at the Edinburgh International Film Festival and was kinda blown away by it. The set-up, a nocturnal descent into the rabbit hole, was really suspenseful and echoed a lot of horror movies we've seen before (only with more interesting characters). As the film progressed, however, I realized that I was in for a different kind of ride. The film is really a Gothic tragedy, about a damaged man with an impossible obsession. Personally, I loved the way the film thwarted my expectations and took me to a deeper kind of horror. The horror is nihilistic, the fear isn't of death so much as loneliness. Kudos to the actors for delivering such great performances, particularly the lead character, after whom the film is named. I loved the whole world of the film, dark, baroque, full of natural menace... Just great.
