So what's not to like?

A much under rated movie. The few comments seem to vary between the very favourable and the down right disgusted. It is considered either so terrible it shouldn't be shown or so bland it is only fir for TV. Neither is fair, the film has a really good opening, tremendous build up to the main event, a most effective and well executed attack with satisfying ending. So what's not to like? The central rape sequence is not explicit but at the very start of the film we see two fairly explicit and sexy sequences involving the bound woman. One of these turns out to be within a film she is making within the film and the other I believe is fantasy (presumably of the stalker/rapist). This start colours the film and remains in the mind imposing itself maybe during the rape and thereby making it appear more explicit than it is. The babysitter and baby itself are used simply as devices to assist the plot and they possibly could have been brought more satisfactorily into the film, but never mind. Powerful, involving and largely assured film making with very fine central performance.
