Empathy, Inc. ★★★★

Extremely good direction and cinematography combined with some really excellent editing, but quite a bit of the dialog felt clunkier than it needed to be.

Acting was also a high point, and the film makes the absolute best use of its budget. It's creative and artistic while only feeling a *little* show-offy.

Similar level of quality and production as Timecrimes, another one of my recent low-budget scifi/horror favorites.
