masterful mystery
20 October 2014 | by (upstate NY US) – See all my reviews

Saw this at Woodstock film festival and it was a well crafted story that I thought was excellent. Stars Judd Hirsch,and the whole cast were great. The camera shots/cinematography were well done and I thought the music score was also very fitting, eerie. There are many twists and turns in the plot/storyline that will keep you wondering through the whole movie. Also liked the allegories they used, interesting additions that added to the mystery. The audience clapped at the conclusion so it seemed it was very well enjoyed by the entire theater. I would recommend this to anyone to see, as I feel they would be thoroughly entertained.
