Rating: 4/5 stars
This film definitely is a master riddle, that you attempt to solve and the puzzle just seems to gradually get larger and harder. Personally, I love films that leave me just slightly confused, yet vaguely curious. And then when it’s all done, it’s satisfying to know the end result but the execution is what makes the film great. I love the editing, insanely complicated plot, and cinematography.
The cinematography definitely illustrates a beautiful use of color and focus pulls. Each colorful, bright and blurry image compliments the storyline’s progression and the abstract editing that makes this film amazing. As the story is a very intriguing portion of the film, you’ll definitely be lost and slightly confused in the beginning. It takes a moment of catching up each reveal, to finally understand the stakes and risks during the film.
As I’d rather not give away too much of the plot, I will say Rosario Dawson did a perfect job at portraying a stiff woman through her exterior and an internally vulnerable character later as the story progresses. Honestly, all of the lead actors did a great job at portraying their characters and the writers did a fantastic job of not revealing too much about motives and morals.
