I watched this film after hearing film analyst Rob Ager praise it highly. The film has a very good script, is superbly directed and consistently unpredictable and entertaining. All the performances are very good and it is very disturbing at times. Ordinarily I'd put down to laziness the logical errors in a film of this sort, but given that Rob Ager swears by it I've endeavoured to analyse it more thoroughly...
I'll also do this because the film seems so damn sure of itself and every other aspect of it is so well done. Some of the logical inconsistencies also seem very deliberate. Clearly influenced by The Shining this film is well worth at least one watch although I am sure it'll be very polarising. 3 stars for now with a pending 4
lol at all the literal minded (dare i say it superficial) comments about the logic. It's a pretty good movie that's very engrossing psychologically and strong tonally. Aided by a strong and sympathetic turn by Melissa George and great atmospheric texture throughout. Recommended despite any surface level inconsistencies.
