    An indie gem.
  2. The characters' faces reveal more about them than any words that come out of their mouths.
  3. 80
    Made with intelligence and formal sophistication.
  4. Dieckmann's debut film is skillfully acted, and builds a sense of true menace.
  5. Re-creates that chilling sense that comes when, in the middle of a pleasant conversation, one realizes the other person is off his rocker.
  6. This intelligently acted and well-paced story avoids most of the clichés.
