A life at stake
22 February 2020 | by denis-23791See all my reviews

What happens when entertainment meets judgement over life or death? This movie holds its grip on the viewer until the very last minute. We suffer with the protagonist and try to read her antagonist's face who is played brilliantly. Excellently written suspense, with a critical eye on the absurdness and at the same time blessing of a TV show at time threatening to get out of hand.
