Taut, dark and luscious
25 June 2018 | by jdalglieshSee all my reviews

This movie ticks all the boxes for its genre (which, by the way, is the 90% cocoa kind of dark comedy, so don't expect every laugh to be a belly laugh).

Clayton Jacobson shines his directorial expertise at a fabulous script and the end result is deliciously fascinating.

There are twists and turns that I didn't see coming (and I'm a pretty savvy predictor of plot twists) - yet from the first frame, we know we're in for a dark and unsettling journey.

The tension stays high throughout, except when we're let off the hook with an uncomfortable chuckle. But honestly, from the word go you KNOW we're not in a unicorns-and-puppies kind of world here.

The character psychology is utterly consistent and beautifully drawn by both screenwriter and cast. The acting is superb - nuanced and brilliantly paced - and the story builds in a hugely satisfying way, with information being revealed at just the right time, every time.

Cinematography, art direction, music and editing are all excellent, supporting the overall mood and story with textured layering that does its work almost invisibly, it's so good.

I can't wait to see this movie again. Even though a part of me kinda doesn't want to. (Did I mention, it's dark?)

Highly recommended.
