Cons: No cons from me.
The camera quality is great and there are a lot of very creative shots. The story is unique and intriguing, especially with the character names. I really enjoyed watching this.


An intriguing and captivating crime thriller with masterful tension and a suspenseful atmosphere, keeping viewers on edge throughout.

The film is beautifully shot with some high-quality production value, the lighting is gorgeous and perfectly crafted. There are a lot of noticeable issues with the sound mix however, with the foley often overpowering the visuals (footstep & gun sounds) as well as the dialogue being hard to hear at parts (I.e Phone Call). The accompanying score is great when it comes to building tension as it adds to the moody and dark nature of the film.

Overall this was a great watch and highly recommended.
