Pretentious and groundless
10 July 2018 | by TheBigSickSee all my reviews

The plot of this film is disposable, and most of the illusory scenes are merely disturbing. There are too many voice-overs. The setting and tone are kind of weird and inconsistent throughout the film. A supposedly interesting thriller just turns out to pretentious and groundless.
