Storyline

Growing numbers of men and women believe the city is a maze. They are leaving their jobs, their families, their entire lives behind. Every day, they walk the streets, opening doors. They are searching for a door they are convinced has been lost for thousands of years: the exit. What's behind it? Something else. Something new. Using a strange system of maps, symbols and measurements, one believer - Alice - now thinks she has found it. Written by Martyn Pedler

Was expecting more...
12 September 2012 | by stuartkparkSee all my reviews

After first reading about Exit I was intrigued, on paper this was a film that ticked all the boxes for me. I like films that are a diversion from the norm, usually make little sense and keeps you guessing.

I found Exit visually fascinating, the slow swooping shots through the city showing the buildings as a maze and roads as the pathways to a possibly escape. The concept behind the film was simple; most of the best ideas are. The film features a core group of characters using their own techniques to seek out the door to lead to their escape. This for me is where the film falls down. I found the characters stale and uninteresting. There was no plight or consequence for failure. If they want to escape to something better, how bad is their present situation? The film didn't make me route for them or want them to succeed. I felt the characters situations didn't change from the start to the end, there was no journey for either the characters or the audience. Also I feel the whole obsession side to the characters were not explored enough.

In essence a great idea and well shot film with lots of potential let down by poorly written and/or poorly directed characters.
