Stick with it and you will appreciate this Thriller!
Iggy Pop, though not a super actor, does his bit well...after all, he is playing an aging, 'sex, drugs and rock & roll' Rock star! (smile). While watching you enter into conversations from the main characters,.... trying to decipher where it started...as what you would do, if you were to mingle into someone else's conversation at a party....but you won't start to grasp it until a little while in, as the movie and characters start to develop. I found it intriguing, and being a major 'Secret Squirrel' fan, I am easily bored with thrillers that haven't taken the time to be inventive, have so many loopholes and you've worked out 'who done it' within the first 5 minutes! This movie is NOT one of those. With this movie, your intrigue into the characters backgrounds, keeps the momentum up and glued to the screen, leading you into a few directions, that clear up some unanswered questions you might have. Admittedly, the 'slooth' in me, had a spark about a third of the way through of what the conclusion would be, but it kept me questioning and in self doubt until right at the end! Well worth the watch for a low budget movie....well, I'm not sure what Iggy would have commanded, but movies like this I remember, as it's the Director that should be applauded for managing to keep us enthralled.
