A very good thriller
19 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Riddle is a small scale film, that plays out like a film noir.It"s captivating mood is kept throughout the story. The camera work is excellent, and the actors are all in fine form. This film I have watched many times, mainly because of the mood it creates, a time and place you want to go back and visit

with multiple viewings, not many films can accomplish that.It just goes to show, you don"t need to write a blockbuster for an enjoyable movie experience.I have watched many films in my life time which spans sixty four years. One thing I have learned is to be patient with what the film makers are trying to convey, and judge it on that merit, by doing so, I have enjoyed a wide variety of cinema.By the way, Scott Glasgows music composition is very good. especially in the end credits.
