Amazing indie thriller
15 June 2009 | by See all my reviews

I saw Nara at the Hamilton Film Festival in 2008. This was definitely the best film I saw there during the week. I am not usually a fan of the horror/thriller genre, but this was an exception. The film took its time introducing the characters and story, not relying on cheap thrills as I've become accustomed to with so many Hollywood releases. The story itself was unique and really kept me guessing to the end. Another standout for me was the lead actor, Dylan Macdonald, who really carried the first half of the film, exploring the character of Blane with minimal use of dialogue. We were lucky enough to talk to the director Navin Ramaswaran after the screening. He was open to all our questions and I really look forward to seeing his next movie.
