Storyline

We all have apartment horror stories: annoying roommates, asshole landlords, dilapidated buildings, among many more nightmare scenarios. The search for a nice place to live in a desirable location with reasonable rents, decent neighbors and soundproof walls is more of a challenge than it should be, so when Sarah lucks into a sweet one-bedroom at Asilo Del Mar Apartments, she think she's hit the jackpot. Situated on a quiet street in Los Angeles, it's got plenty of space, friendly tenants, group BBQs and even a cute neighbor next door. But this being L.A., all is not what it seems: loud noises start keeping her awake at night; her cat is missing; everyone seems to be a little too helpful and friendly, except for the weirdo, Lester. Soon, Sarah learns she didn't choose this apartment - it chose her. Written by AnonymusB

Do you trust your neighbors...?
25 May 2020 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

I hadn't even heard of this 2019 movie titled "1BR" prior to getting to sit down and watch it here in 2020.

Now, I am not familiar with the work of David Marmor, but I will say that this movie definitely turned out to be interesting. The movie was nicely directed and definitely turned out to be entertaining.

The storyline was good, although it felt a little bit rushed. I mean, it was rather quickly that Sarah (played quite well by Nicole Brydon Bloom) managed to convince her captors of her assumed-intention of remaining in the community. But other than that, it was definitely an enjoyable movie.

The acting in "1BR" was quite good, especially from lead actress Nicole Brydon Bloom, because she was fantastic in this role. Taylor Nichols, playing Jerry, definitely also performed quite well. It was a shame, however, that actress Naomi Grossman wasn't given a more important role and more on-screen time, because she definitely could have added a lot more to the movie.

I found that director David Marmor had an interesting approach with this movie, in terms of taking on a cult mentality and a twisted sense of community. I liked that about the movie.

It should be said that the ending of the movie wasn't a particularly fulfilling one. It felt a bit bland, to be honest. Not that it ruined the movie or anything, but it could have been ended in a more wholesome manner. It just felt too cliché.

My rating of "1BR" is a six out of ten stars.
