Enthralling
8 August 2013 | by cB391See all my reviews

I just came upon this movie, and having liked the poster decided to give it a watch, though I was skeptical of the "Tie Camera" and other first person camera usages. Going into the movie, having done no research on the story or anything related, I wasn't expecting such an entertaining film. After the movie, I am still pretty confused about the distinction between the reality and the fiction that the film presents (not reading any reviews or interviews).

Plot - The film starts of as two guys making a documentary on the life of a conspiracy theorist (Terrence). One of the guys (Erin) gets attached to (Terrence's arguments) and seeks to continue his research. It leads him to a secret society, where the goal is to understand it's history, as well as their rituals and membership. The two guys differ in their thought processes about conspiracy theorists, which actually makes the film much more appreciable. There isn't one side putting down the other, and tries to deconstruct the "life of a conspiracy theorist". Without ruining the film, suffice to say, the film picks up with various twists and turns towards the end that are well worth the wait in this 84 minute flick.

Acting - I found the acting to be quite cold at times though Alan Peterson (Terrance) was amazing, while the main characters juxtaposition allowed for a smooth flow in the story to develop that did help to take away some of the focus from their acting abilities (which were okay, but lacking at times). The various supporting roles didn't encroach with anything interesting, and added little to the film. Sound - The music through the first half of the film was nicely produced and played well, but towards the end, it got extremely harsh and it worked with the movie, but could definitely have been more audience-friendly.

Camera Work - I did not enjoy the first person scenes towards the end of the film, but using the camera's as flashbacks and to record the recordings were definitely well done and well thought out. It is simply a matter of preference to which I dislike the shakiness, whereas other people do enjoy it. Miscellaneous - Overall the story was definitely interesting, and tried to present a variety of views, and the numerous twists, especially the ending are open to interpretation because of their ambiguity, and lead the user to question the intent. We never find out the result of the scene at the end, and the roles of various people are revealed, which draw the user to question: Who made this film, and for what purpose?

I definitely enjoyed this film, and I think it is because I went in with no expectations, and the movie didn't try to tell me a story, but gave me a chance to think about it, and develop my own interpretation, something lacking in spectacle movies. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys Thriller (light horror) movies, that keep you in suspense and actually don't preach to you (on one side or the other). 8/10.
