A truly wicked and suspenseful thriller/dark (really dark) comedy. Rosamund Pike was great in GONE GIRL but she really knocks this one out of the park. She’s by far the best thing about this movie, but it’s got several other things that make it worth checking out as well.
This would definitely be in a subgenre I like to call “Bad People Doing Bad Things To Each Other,” as not a single one of the central characters is a good person or even close, but this kind of movie can be great fun if done well, and this is done well.
There are a number of unexpected turns, but I will say the ending was a surprise and 100% satisfying. Also, nice job working my favorite DJ Shadow song in there! P.S. I’m so glad to see Dianne Wiest getting work again!
