Great character driven drama thriller well worth seeing
A masterclass in visual storytelling. This film should be studied.
Gripping story about morality and how actions may not be as impactful as we hope
One of my favorite thrillers, sets a mood of dread
A slow burn thriller with a great performance by Jesse Eisenberg.
A good indie with a dark ending that will haunt you to your bones.
Bit slow and uneventful. But pretty interesting
Bleak to such an extent, feels overly moody in order to make up for lack of progressive action and plot.
I did not like the protagonist, and the plot was uninteresting.

As the boundaries of the relationships become blurred, Mia and Joanne compete for Connor's affection.
Shot in documentary style from the perspective of an almost alien observer, the film is an exploration of the ravaged oil fields of post-Gulf War Kuwait. An effective companion to his earlier film Fata Morgana, Herzog again perceives the desert as a landscape with its own voice, as he glides over seas of oil, geyser-like infernos, monstrous smoke plumes and ashen roadways. With musical accompaniment by Wagner, Prokofiev and Pärt to boot, he observes the soot-covered creatures allured by the blaze.
An awkward office drone becomes increasingly unhinged after a charismatic and confident look-alike takes a job at his workplace and seduces the woman he desires.

On a faraway mountaintop, eight kids with guns watch over a hostage and a conscripted milk cow.
At the dawn of the space-race, two radio-obsessed teens discover a strange frequency over the airwaves in what becomes the most important night of their lives and in the history of their small town.
