“Pay as much attention to the mise-en-scène as to the story, that is, to everything you see on the screen except the editing.”
— A Sharper Focus
“It is the sort of film for which a single viewing is woefully insufficient.”
— Battleship Pretension
“The movie takes place in a lone room, and while at first it may seem like a stage driven choice, and maybe it was, it also works as perfect conductor for the story.”
