Victoria

Victoria ★★★★½

My initial impression to this film was something along the lines of "Victoria Snickets: A Series of Unfortunate Decisions". But my juvenile approach was picked up, slapped across the face and drawn into this taut, emotional thrillride. The single shot is masterfully used, fully immersing you in this ever devolving downward spiral of terror that Victoria and the four guys find themselves in. But by the end, the smartest person in the room survives and excels, exactly like this film. Highly recommended.

And, should you wish to experience this film even more so from Victoria's perspective, turn off the subtitles: you'll gain even more respect for what she was able to accomplish.
