You give me a time and a place, I give you a five minute window. Anything happens in that five minutes and I’m yours. No matter what. Anything happens a minute either side of that and you’re on your own. Do you understand?
What a surprising movie. Not knowing anything about it other than having seen the trailer I was expecting the typical hollywood treatment, overkill effects, non-stop action and over the top dialogue.
Instead I saw a, for lack of better words, minimalistic and restrained movie focused on telling a story and conveying emotions and a mood. Right from the start it grabs you and doesn’t let go until the end titles start rolling.
Dialogue is kept to a minimum, no bold crap, no action sequences that don’t serve a purpose (although there’s plenty of action), it all just worked and shows that great movies can still be made.
If you haven’t seen it yet; go watch it.
