An interesting and captivating thriller
12 March 2018 | by mikedonisSee all my reviews

A different flavour of film from Ryan M Andrews. Art of Obsession is simultaneously intense, sad, and thrilling. Terrific cinematography contrasts and complements the story's disturbing themes, and Ry Barrett and Winny Clarke lead a strong cast. I was genuinely absorbed by this flick. If you like psychological thrillers, this is a good one to check out.
