If you’ve read any of the reviews of this movie that made it sound to be a “Brilliant” or “ingenious” film, you’ve already had it ruined. Not because this is a bad film, but because it’s a perfectly “meh” film. It’s ok in what it shows, but a third of the movie is just three different interviews with people that saw or heard something. The rest is just a woman running around in a 50’s skirt with a guy, both of them making comments that always felt too on the nose for me.
This is a perfectly “ok” film that I guess you should watch if you want to be in on the okness of it.
