“I found this film to be quite bizarre at first. Wasnu0026#39;t sure where it was going in the first segment of it.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eBut as it continued, I began to understand that the film is a bit like peeling an onion. You find more and more layers, and begin to see how these people are each connected to each other. I definitely enjoyed that aspect of it. It all takes place in one night in one location. Not sure if thatu0026#39;s due to the budgetary or what, but it didnu0026#39;t feel claustrophobic on my viewing.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe themes seem to resonate with topics that we are all chatting about today. I enjoyed getting a perspective on those topics from the past.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe performances were fun even though I didnu0026#39;t recognize any of the actors… I still got into the story.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eVisuals were fun and impressive despite being in one house. Reminded me of Whou0026#39;s afraid of Virgina Wolf.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSound and music were excellent.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003ePerhaps not a film for everyone, but I very much enjoyed it.”
