good film
23 October 2015 | by remembervhsSee all my reviews

This is an excellent film.

I won't get into specifics, but the plot revolves around the platonic relationship between two male friends for a couple days in New York.

One of them is utterly unsure of himself, so he overcompensates. The other has a healthy amount of confidence and seems totally at ease with himself. One of the two also suffers from a mental illness, and it's probably not the one you would assume based on my brief description of their personalities. Over the course of the film their relationship is examined and tested.

The film establishes an atmosphere of dread very effectively, though this is punctuated by sporadic humor. The plot did not go in the direction I expected and I was happily surprised by the conclusion and the lack of ambiguity (I'm fine with ambiguity, but ambiguous horror movies about mental illness are a dime a dozen).
