  • None of these elements quite come together, and while the clothes and props look authentic, the acting doesn't. show more

  • Is the movie about marriage, or sex, or murder, or the murder plot, or what? I'm not sure. It deals all those cards, and fate shuffles them. You may not like it if you insist on counting the deck after the game and coming up with 52. But if you get 51 and are amused by how the missing card was made to vanish, this may be a movie to your liking. show more

  • It seems carefully calibrated to shock viewers out of a familiar frame of reference, while leaving nothing behind to take its place. show more

    What a pleasant little gem. Feels like a modernized version of an old ********* movie. Everyone there is an excellent actor. The movie is well written and the characters fully developed. There were some truly surprising twists and turns. Very suspenseful. Go see it. You will not be disappointed.
