Gripping film
29 January 2016 | by cool_metzSee all my reviews

From the moment I saw the trailer, I knew this film would be great and it did not disappoint.

The movie follows an alcoholic who ends up in prison in a remote town. His time behind bars suddenly becomes a living hell at the hands of a madman cop who pays a surprise visit. Will he be able to escape this lunatic?

The performances are perfect, notably Ali Suliman who plays Daban (the psycho cop) to perfection. His performance, although unique, is slightly reminiscent of Heath Ledger's Joker, in his ability to be funny as well as menacing. The comedy/chemistry between Daban and the portly female warden who takes a liking to him is brilliant. The cinematography is brilliant, dark and definitely adds to the suspense.

A highly recommended film.
