Wow
30 December 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I say Wow because this was a truly interesting, truly different type of debut. For anyone else, it would've been surprising, but because I've seen Amy Seimetz as an actress and the type of films she gravitates towards, I knew this wouldn't be your typical run of the mill debut indie flick. It really is psychologically complex, maybe a little too much seeing as how at times it did threaten to overwhelm. There aren't many "thrilling" things happening, but in terms of the emotion boiling to the surface, it's hard to look away from the two leads, especially the female. This is in many ways "Antichrist-lite" and for those who've seen Von Trier's film will know that means the actors need to go to some dark places. Truly really good debut from Seimetz
