Riveting and compact, a stellar performance from Franco! This gripping survival thriller manages to enthrall, even confined to a tight space

The fight to survive makes us do things which are impossible.
My kind of movie: A well-made simple solo story in a limited remote setting. Evidently I still can’t hack the gory stuff & had to look away.
Hard to watch knowing it is a real-life story.
The nerve, the nerve... screech screech white vein
Epic story of survival. The editing, storytelling and tremendous acting by Franco make it great.
