10 Cloverfield Lane ★★★½

the ultimate in having your cake and eating it too.

i was completely fascinated by this movie, and actually watching it did nothing to dilute my interest or enthusiasm. the way this thing slides into its third act is *sublime,* and Winstead / Gallagher / Goodman all kill it.

10 CLOVERFIELD LANE could be the film industry's Beyoncé moment.
