Excellent noir-comedy
14 July 2008 | by cg_reganSee all my reviews

Saw this at Phantasmagoria and was really impressed. It's a black comedy loaded with twists and turns despite being set almost entirely in a hotel room. The film-makers shot on a rare type of black-and-white film stock and suffered for their decision as the film took something like ten years to complete. The result is definitely worth it as the visual look of the film is stunning. The actors are fantastic throughout aided by a really tight script and there are some truly gripping sequences. The fantastic Herrman-esquire score also helps maintain a consistent atmosphere. There are also some very ambitious shots in there!
