Chit~Chat: The first thing that came to my mind was that the movie is immensely big and I don’t remember getting bored, although there wasn’t so much action I remember, which would have keep me awake 😉 I guess this is something positive.
The quality of the sound was so bad (and I think it wasn’t my version of the film, but the movie itself) and sometimes the video too that it really bugged me. For example when they were talking and you heard a character less for a minute and then you heard him better. The video quality fit with the films concept, although there was a moment when they were chasing each other in the woods, and I felt like I’m watching the Blair Witch Project.
Beside these thing there were some really mind-blowing moments. One was right in this scene in the forest. The other was when the cops were beating Billie. I got such a blub. No more spoiler… It was worth watching because of this moment.
The acting was really good and the atmosphere of the film really brought what it should bring.
