Slight but interesting look at obsession
14 August 2013 | by (Birmingham, England) – See all my reviews

This is a low budget film that looks at obsession. It follows a geeky scientist who has a one night stand with a colleague and develops a deep and dangerous obsession with her.

It is hard to pigeon hole this film- it's more drama than thriller and to be honest not a lot happens. However the acting is decent and I found it a believable account of unrequited love.

Rubberneck won't appeal to everyone and many will find it too boring ( my wife did) but I found it strangely compelling, mainly I think due to the creepily realistic portrayal of the scientist by Alex Karpovsky.

A film that's worth checking out for those that like indie films.
