Dir. David Palamaro
2/5 Indie film and firmly indie in feel. Liberal use of jump cuts and long takes for effect. A lot of hand-held camera work. Acting and dialogue a bit stiff which isn’t helped by the quality of sound replacement in post production.
Film school, amdram. Implicit references to Rope and explicit references to The Mousetrap.
It’s a good story. It’s stylish to the point of being tricksy. I can see why it would do well on the festival circuit. If the performances were a little less stagey and the sound wasn’t so obviously post dubbed Murder Made Easy would be pretty good. One reviewer said it was like an episode of Tales of the Unexpected. As such it would get a thumbs up.
