Black Rock

Black Rock ★★

From actress, writer, director, Jenny Lewis impersonator Katie Aselton comes Black Rock a brisk 80 minute survival thriller.

The brevity, which I usually appreciate - although maybe not to this degree, seems to be one of the main problems with the film. None of the characters felt like real people and some extra time to flesh them out certainly couldn't have hurt. Katie's husband Mark Duplass is given the screenplay credit and he has a track record of writing short and powerful scripts with Blue Jay, Paddelton and even Creep all under 90 minutes but it doesn't come together here.
