A deeply moving and atmospheric film that gives an original, complex take on the traditional ghost story.
I can almost guarantee this will be mismarketed by the studio as an exciting, action-packed sci-fi thriller. It’s not.
This crime noir with a high degree of artistic merit is a confident debut from director Shipei Wen.
This film isn’t grand in scope, but in its concept and storytelling. It also features one of the very best performances of the year.
Director Antoine Fuqua is adept at creating intensity and suspense, and this film ramps up the stress level almost to a breaking point.
It’s always nice to see a substantial leading role for a mature female actor, and this film provides a great one for Sigourney Weaver.
