Although a big part of the film takes place in a staircase with only 9 floors, the actual building were filming took place had 17 floors (it was chosen like that on purpose, because of the sequence shot that takes place in the first act), so the crew had to memorize 3 levels or reality regarding the floor numbers: there were the real floor numbers, from the building, there were the "fake" floor numbers (existing only in the universe of the film), and there were the floor number of the day (because sometimes even if the crew was working in, for example, floor number 6 in the film, if they needed to shoot a quick insert from, lets say, floor number 9, they wouldn't all actually go up 3 floors, they just asked production designer Adelle Achar and her crew to replace the number from the wall for that instant), so, it got to be pretty funny how on several times when someone from the crew took the elevator to get to a certain floor, in front of the neighbors that actually lived on the building, and tried to remember which floor they were going, they said things like: "We're going to floor number 6 of the real world, which is number 2 of "The Incident" but number 7 of today". Neighbors just thought then that the people from the crew were crazy or affected by severe drugs. See more »

I cannot understand the negative reviews. Acting? Photography? Really? Is that your serious concern about this awesome piece of art? This is not a film to watch worried about technique, nor about entertainment. This is a movie to think, to be surprised and intrigued. Its a huge mindf**k puzzle, in an intense and crazy parallel dimension - at the real world. A sci-fi without space ships, just regular persons and regular scenery, through a very not regular story.
Do yourself a favor and watch this film without trying to be an egocentric movie critic, but a true fan of art and different angles. Then you can go back to your comfortable "I saw this already" kind of movie. And no, nobody is paying me a penny to review it. Believe me, I work at a quality control enterprise for video-on-demand platforms, I watch all kinds of movies everyday, but this stands out.
