2 Hours if you're in the Mood
26 March 2020 | by andrewberg-34786See all my reviews

Very detailed from start to finish between the drama of a modern relationship to the subtle insecurities that boil up when people are stressed.

This work it beautifully shot, extremely atmospheric and knows how to elicit a mood that keeps your interest considering the very slow plot progression. The slow progression makes the film difficult to process at times but the pure emotion that the scenes evoke make this an interesting watch. You could say, it's a vibe.

There is a recurring theme of paranoia and uncertainty and the fog scene was actually very suspenseful and enjoyable to watch!
