Linklater made a thriller! Dialogue heavy, one location, gripping social slow burn. Only downside is the poor cinematography, nothing major
This movie is severely underrated. The acting and the dialogue are phenomenal. A little goes a long way.
The cinematography speaks for itself. The story is a bit confusing but all in all great acting and a good movie.
One room, one scene, one conversation. Thought provoking, about how people think and talk about old sins, and how such sins may be addressed
3 actors, 1 hotel room, 90 minutes, all the drama.
1 Room. 3 Friends. Full of secrets. Slow. Engaging. Realistic. Worth your time.
Very dense and dramatic. The one set location creates a clostrophobic atmosphere
Low budget, claustrophobic, talky and interesting.
One location and three great performers taking on some pretty edgy material from early Linklater.
Watched theatre version before, real classic

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.

With musical accompaniment by Wagner, Prokofiev and Pärt to boot, he observes the soot-covered creatures allured by the blaze.
