What are people saying?

  • Nick Schwab's rating of the film Serpent

    While the patience that Serpent gives to its characters dimension is commendable, it takes too long for its main turning points to arise (a good 1/2 hour for one, 40+ minutes for another.) At times, it's a more dramatic and thematically-stronger, Open Water (2003), since it also is suspenseful, but with a greater depth. However, Serpent is padded in its length too, where it should've started closer to the fray.
