Slow burning
23 October 2019 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

I understand if some people have issues with the pacing of the movie. Or feel not much is happening. Overall that is not untrue. I still would think it's unfair rating it so low, because even if you don't like it (which is perfectly normal), this was made with quite some craftmanship. The acting, writing, framing and editing to name a few things are at least above average (and I would even say that is an understatement).

Don't forget this is a low budget movie. So yeah maybe some would have liked more or even better explanations. Fair enough. You may have liked it to be a faster movie too. It's not, it does take its time. If you can dig that, you are in for quite some trip, that will be engaging and shocking (again if you don't lose interest midway through, which is not the movies fault or yours, it's just telling you that this isn't your cup of tea)
