So, why is he doing this? This is the task he sets for Saul after he kidnaps him. Profile the killer and figure out what makes him tick, what makes him murder.
This movie is not a blood fest or a jump out of your seat scary movie, but it is not for the little ones in your family . There are moments that are chilling.
Pollari, the actor, that plays David (the killer) created a character that is multi-layered. There are times where you see the chilling cold-blooded killer, the rage that lies within him. Then there are glimpses of vulnerability, self-doubt, and fear. He reveals the lost part of him that Saul so desperately wants to save.
Gabriele Angieri, plays the retired FBI profiler and looks like he's always been on the big screen. At times, he looks similar to Robert Deniro. His role becomes almost fatherly at times to this disturbed, young man. I hope to see Angieri in more films in the future.
The filming is excellent and looks professional. I often forgot I was watching an independent, low-budget film .
I really enjoyed the moments between Pollari and Angieri. They worked very well together and had that chemistry we always look for between actors.Read more ›
You're correct, the above is not a review. It is a warning to those that base their movie-watching decisions on people who write such tripe.
Outstanding filmography--ever seen Minnesota at Christmas time--BLEAK! and that comes through loud and clear. Acting was solid and the two male leads did Outstanding jobs in the protrayals of their characters. Is it a popcorn-munchi9ng, fun-evening, movie? Absolutely not. Is it one that will make you think about how fragile life, ego, and love of one another can be. Definitely.
A movie about a serial killer does not require horrific examples of the killer's handiwork. It does not require the killer's method to top other killer's, with the level of sadism, ritual, cleverness, etc.
Using that just makes a story contrived and gimmicky. It pushes it into a sub-genre of horror that then depends on escalation of the grotesque, and ruins what could have been a good psychological thriller.
They had a pretty good premise of an adolescent killer, imprisoning a profiler that had been brought in on the case. THAT relationship could have been awesome on so many levels, with better focus and writing and editing of the film as a whole.
I know it's bad when I end up watching the seconds turn into minutes, slowly ticking away.
If you want to make a horror flick, make a good one, if you want to make a psychological thriller, have the confidence in your project and don't try dumping everything in the pot, just in case.
There is nothing worse than a movie that lacks confidence in the execution, cant decide what it is, and expects an audience to hang in there for 2 hours, hoping with enough time, they will take it seriously, when they just want it to be over.
