The film is good, it fulfills its purpose which is to generate suspense and fear. It has a good premise and the fact that it is almost a silent film for much of its duration, makes it a different movie. It is that same silence that generates the great climate of tension that is achieved throughout the film.However, I find many weak points in his script, which makes the film does not become as good as many want to see.…
A great drama with the classic deep dialogues of all Linklater films, but which is also an exquisite comedy with very funny moments.
I had the good fortune to see it at the Mar del Plata Film Fest (Argentina), and during the whole movie there were many moments when the whole movie theater was laughing one's head off. I do not remember having laughed so much with a movie for a long time. Especially funny the character of Bryan Cranston, who plays a totally different role than he usually does, and he does it very well.
