- Piercing review by Alphaville
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.

An acquired taste

One needs a high threshold of revulsion to continue watching this film. Abbot is excellent, convincing and compelling but he is not enough to carry the whole film. It is a bizarre film that promises much but fails to deliver in the end.

Cinema Paradiso need to revise their Star rating to accommodate this piece of utter drivel. I agree with Alphaville. Terminally boring but with added revulsion. How this got a comedy tag is beyond me. Then again takes all sorts?
