Reed (Christopher Abbott) is going on a business trip and he's got everything meticulously planned: check into a hotel and kill an unsuspecting victim. Only then can he rid himself of his devious impulses and continue to be a good husband and father. But he gets more than he bargained for with volatile call girl Jackie (Mia Wasikowska). Before the night is over, a feverish nightmare will unfold, and Reed and Jackie will seal their bond in blood.
Sundance-style indie film-making at its worst. Long static close-ups of talking heads will soon have you switching off. It may be cheap, but it’s terminally boring. Godard made Breathless for next to nothing. Have modern indie film-makers learned nothing? It’s promoted as a thriller, but it’s too boring to be thrilling. Towards its end it adds some gruesomeness to make you pay attention, but that only makes it even more loathsome.
