Victoria

Victoria ★★★½

Victoria relies on the daring, and much ballyhooed, continuous take. And it succeeds greatly with this feat. Shows how far filmmaking has come since Hitchcock's psuedo-continous shot in Rope. This 'gimmick' is no longer confined to a single room with a set number of players. Victoria goes full throttle and walks a tightrope. One glaring mistake by the cast or crew would have spelled disaster.

As for the story itself, it's serviceable but not worthwhile. But why in the world is a single female not only clubbing by herself but going off with a group of strange drunk guys by herself? Smells funny.
