Pretty dense, but I'm pretty sure I really dug this.
Solid! Good performances and really well-defined style. Script definitely left something to be desired, but for a debut this has some really interesting and cool stuff going on. Kind of like an anti-Antonioni a little bit, with architecture really revealing the inner depths of people rather than presenting their cold alienation writ large. Could've done with more backstory about Jin and his father, and less of the generic melancholy American indie soundtrack.

Okay I have more to say now, because a friend messaged me on Facebook, asking me if I thought he gouged his eyes out at the end of the movie. This is what I sent back to him, with a little more editing and addition.
The whole reason we're not shown the result and left w/Rachel Weisz sitting at the table is because we're considering Colin Farrell's options. He can 1. Gouge his eyes out 2. Not gouge his eyes…
