(This review may contain spoilers).
This was a movie that seemed a bit slow-moving at first. I couldn’t help feeling some sympathy for Gordo at the start… but even though I could empathise with him (I find myself being quite socially awkward, though not in the same way), I didn’t like him at all by the end of the movie.
I didn’t find Simon to be a very sympathetic character. I did like Robyn’s character. There were bits and pieces of her past revealed that indicated she was a character with a lot more depth to her than it first appeared.
This film did a good job of showing how things in the past can still affect people in the present. There weren’t as many darker scenes in this movie as I was expecting, but there were quite a few moments that were more adult in nature. They did weird me out quite a bit… but they worked well in this movie.
Although there were parts of this film that moved slower than others, there was quite a lot of tension in this movie. I recognised several actors in this movie and I thought they did well in their parts. Simon evolved well as a character and there were some really good camera angles in this movie that gave me the opportunity to see the characters as they were being observed.
I liked how the story unfolded and went from something that was fairly innocent, if kind of creepy, to a much darker plot. I wasn’t really that keen on the ending. It left too many questions unanswered.
I did find this movie entertaining to watch. It was tense in parts and there were a number of good actors in it. I don’t think I’d watch it again… but it was good to watch the first time.
