Editorial Reviews

An father searches desperately for his missing daughter as the movie reveals a riveting chain of events. The film takes place in a single, sleazy motel room, but weaves through multiple time periods, showing what happens before, during, and after the crime. If only the father could see the sexual games his child was involved in, much less the erotic compulsions of the various suspects. This fast-paced thriller from acclaimed author, Eric Shapiro, is a roller-coaster mystery with gut-wrenching tension.

Once in a while an independent film blows me away. It doesn't happen often. It's tough to make a movie, particularly with limited resources. And regardless of budget, it's tough to make an audience care for 10 characters in 88 minutes. But RULE OF THREE, I'm thrilled to report, is a rare exception.

Made by the very talented Eric Shapiro (Director and story) and Rhoda Jordan (screenplay and star), RO3 follows three interconnected storylines. A father searches frantically for his missing daughter, a beautiful young couple prepares for a threesome, and a man looks to score Roofalin from a cagey sociopath. Each story takes place, except for a few scenes, in the same hotel room. And nothing, based on first appearances, is what it seems. To explain the film further would be an injustice to those who have not seen it.

Jordan's script peels layers back masterfully. Shapiro's direction is equally patient, always in rhythm with the character's moods. The acting is first rate, too; every performance feels real. RO3 runs like a Swiss timepiece, nothing feels rushed or outstays its welcome. I look for great things in the future from the Shapiro/Jordan team - they've blown me away with their debut.

I love smart independent films like this. I saw this movie at a film festival last year and was really impressed by it, enough to want to buy it when it came out on DVD. It's relentlessly creepy and atmospheric, but intelligent and very cleverly constructed, interweaving 3 separate storylines within the same location. And the performances are genuinely terrific, some of the best you'll find in independent film. If you like your thrillers with smarts and character-driven drama that's actually connected to reality, give this one a look.

I found this film to be somewhat disturbing at times,and dark also.
But somehow, this is the very reason I kept watching from beggining to end. It's so disturbing at times that you want to keep watching just to see
if it will end good or bad. There are a few story lines involved,but they come together brilliantly,but again be careful,each has it's own disturbing twist.
If the darker side of humanity bothers you, then this is not the film for you to watch......but if you can somehow overcome that,to see
brilliant writing, then you will definitely like this movie.

The writing in this movie is great and the story-structure is amazingly inventive. If only more horror movies were this thought-provoking. I loved it!!
