The Man in the Orange Jacket

The Man in the Orange Jacket ★★★½

A scathingly dark and sinister picture that echos the profound and bitter nature of The Dekalog.

The Man in the Orange Jacket has one of the year's most assured and twisted openings; a stalking and home invasion which forces the audience into truly uncomfortable terrority.

Breathlessly paced at a mere 71 minutes, this Lativian drama slinks and shocks whilst trying to convey a deep political message.

Whilst it doesn't always strike those desired notes, this is still a cut above and a film that will linger long after the credits roll.

This is smart, muted, minimalistic filmmaking shot with much precision.
