Actually made me hold my breath for a while
9 June 2018 | by kenconkSee all my reviews

Ted, the boy in this film doesn't seem to be an abnormal boy, but certain things piqued his curiosity in death. His subsequent experimentation with death and dangerous situations was very unsettling. His poker face expression through the worst of deeds was almost horrifying, and caused a lot of worry throughout the movie. This was a brilliant work by the director, letting it go the way it did. The solitude is presented without apology, and no shortening of lonely scenes. Who knows what anyone is capable of, in the wrong circumstances, the wrong family, the wrong relationship dynamics. This was a true gem.
