“There is one question before you, and one answer is required. If you try to communicate with myself or the guard, you will be disqualified.

Amazing what you can do with a single set, a tight screenplay, and a handful of talented actors. Major kudos to this film for trying to stand apart from the Hollywood crowd; the execution isn’t perfect, but there’s something refreshing about watching a thriller with some genuinely neat tricks up its sleeve. It’s a morality tale and a battle of wits, with a just touch of science fiction; and though it probably won’t blow your mind, it is consistently entertaining and smart.
