fragmented, still engaging
4 September 2017 | by comptonroySee all my reviews

fragmented. fine acting. unanswered questions. unfulfilled ending. the movie is engaging however questions remain. there is a want to follow the characters to the end. the performances by both main characters are satisfactory as the story builds. but alas the ending leaves the viewer unsure as to what really happens.
