An Original Outsider Thriller
21 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

Although it starts in familiar territory--2 opposing couples forced to spend the night together in the boonies with no phone-- it quickly switches gears turning unpredictable, ratcheting up the tension. Nobody Can Cool strays from "tried and true" plot conventions to make a taut original outsider thriller.

You won't say, "I've seen this before", and that's exactly part of its charm. The other part is the immersive experience created through the quality of the production and the performances. The actors inject distinctive personalities into each character that make them fun to watch. You care about them and become invested in their stories. I don't want to describe the characters because it is better to get to know them as the film unfolds. I don't want to ruin it, but they do bad things and are in a jam. Sometimes it is pretty funny.

The directors deftly weave the couples' interpersonal conflicts (many allowing for the humor) with a suspenseful smart crime plot that gradually unfolds throughout the movie. The shots are varied and confident with some visually arresting angles that add to a forbidding aura. The sound design adds a complementary background to the plot enhancing the tension and suspense. It's one of the few microbudget films I've seen with a multi-layered plot, complex characters and impressive production design, color, and cinematography to create a distinctive style. Too many films cherry pick what they decide to do well. You get good gore, but no story and cookie cutter characters. It's always a pleasure when a film cares about its plot, characters, and visual appeal at the same time. Nobody Can Cool is that kind of film. It's an original that should be sought out and given some real attention. I rated it ten stars because it impressively succeeds at a high degree of difficulty on no budget, and it's a remarkably well-crafted first feature. Full of chills, thrills, a tight plot that works, it grabs you early on and takes you on a colorful race to the end.
