Trivia

Although there are plenty of modern technologies on display in this film, such as 2019 model cars, flat screen televisions and Mrs. Kok's assistant's tablet device, oddly there is not a smart phone visible or iPhone ringtone to be heard. Instead, the hipster in the parking garage is shown with a slider phone similar to the one Neo used in the Matrix, Chloe has not only an old style rotary phone at home (with the number clearly shown in a pre-internet age style as JAckson-9232) but she carries an older flip phone in her purse.

WTH
11 October 2019 | by leppjessearnoldSee all my reviews

There's a great film here. But it has the feel of one of those hacked films, Keanu Reeves directorial debut for example, where it has been absolutely destroyed with post-production ideas.

Or perhaps it's the case of a great director who can't get the cast and crew he really needs. Great performances have to be properly photographed.

And it should have just been set in Canada. There's a satire of a Canadian (Gavin McAnus) but it all falls flat with a weird L.A. context. This of the great Canadian music that might have been included.

As it is this film makes me think that this is really the mind of the director and it may be less interesting than what The Rules Of Attraction (a really great film) would have me believe. Or it has been messed with despite the director.

Hard to say.
