    Tense, well acted. Reminds me a bit of some of Polanski's films as far as his use of paranoia, his method of playing with reality versus hallucination and the way he builds tension (The Tenant, Rosemary's Baby, Repulsion).

    ★★★★½ Watched 01 Jul, 2014

    Almost experimental. Great soundtrack. Moody as hell. Tracking shots like those of Birth. Reminds me of Roeg's "The Man Who Fell to Earth" in that the film is experienced through the eyes of the alien. Not much is explained. I like the mystery.

    This is one film that did not appeal to me in the least. I was not even particularly impressed by the cinematography. I won't criticize this one because my feelings about it are obviously biased.
