Freehold ★★★½

An intriguing and somewhat surreal dark comedy which is pretty visually disgusting for much of its run time. It plays on revenge fantasy and it does help that the focus of the revenge is an estate agent, a profession which is not exactly universally respected. I wonder how it would have worked with a nurse or a doctor or something like that.

Some of the visuals and camerawork are interesting but the focus is on the conceit and the unravelling of the story, and it's pretty well done. I liked the claustrophobic feel of it and the way the way the nauseating actions of the Spanish guy are shown, you really feel how repellent he seems at the start, and it mirrors the estate agent perfectly. Worth a watch.
