a gem of a psychological thriller!
23 November 2013 | by (Annapolis, MD, United States) – See all my reviews

i found this indie film to be a very captivating, thought provoking psychological thriller. i love a good psychological thriller and this one doesn't disappoint. an experiment in human nature and facing your demons and the skeletons in your own closet which we all have and that makes this a very relatable film. most of us rarely face those skeletons so this film will really make you think about it after the fact. has a very claustrophobic feel to it too. there's something very creepy in facing the horrors within ourselves even more so than in others. the experiment is about getting people to admit to things they hate about themselves or things that they truly regret by putting them on a lock-down for 48hrs w/ virtually no stimulation other than a stranger periodically asking them questions about themselves. great performances all around especially the lead actor who plays Brody, Andrew Roth. this film proves that you can do a lot w/ very little as long as you have solid writing and solid performances. i think this film is also about redemption and whether the path you're on leads you to it or not. "it's never too late" or is it?
