    Kusama’s handling of point of view is diabolically shrewd. She maximizes the terror potential of the vapidly ostentatious modernist mansion without fetishizing it. She intensifies the monstrosity of some of the characters by making them all too human. And as for guessing the ending — good luck. show more

    The movie is a small marvel of contained spaces, exploited beautifully by Kusama and cinematographer Bobby Shore. show more
