I wasn’t too sure at first, but ended up pleasantly surprised.
Just by watching the trailer, I was annoyed with Mendelsohn’s character Lammark, and I questioned casting Woodley as a beat cop – I mean there are so many other more convincing female actors out there. But oddly enough, both actors and their characters grew on me as the film progressed.
I’m also not a fan of slow paced films, and this one mostly is, but oddly enough, Argentinian co-writer and director Damián Szifron (in his first English film debut) made it all work with engaging scenes and circumstances. His directing was spot-on, and although there was ambiguity to many scenes and dialogue, the film came together like an old school psycho-thriller/police procedural. It felt like a non-Hollywood-stylized movie version of a better Criminal Minds episode.
The story was nothing revolutionary, but delivered enough suspense at the right moments, built intriguing character interest, and had some riveting action just at the right times to keep me fully engaged throughout the entire almost two hour runtime. So considering the current slim pickings out there for down and out enjoyable thriller/cop films, this one is a winner, and a definite recommend from me.
If you like David Fincher, you will like this movie.
Szifron, synonymous with good cinema. Everything he has done as a director in his career is brilliant.
Shailene Woodley, Ben Mendelsohn and Jovan Adepo’s performances show chemistry and good dialogues between them.
Ralph Ineson’s character works, although he doesn’t have an explosive ending.
The story is entertaining and dynamic. The music accompanies very well, as well as the photography and the scenarios.
Despite the complications in filming, the covid19 and the financing, it is a high-level film.
Recommended: Wild Tales (2014) from Argentina. Nominated for the Oscars for Best International Film.
