    ★★★★

    Been a good bit since I’ve watched this— Teller and Woodley are so perfect together on screen and the supporting cast all provide respectable contributions. 

    Something I noticed this time around that I hadn’t really taken note of before (as I said, it’s been a while) is how beautifully lit this film is. I was entranced by so many shots. It’s actually one of the movie’s primary strengths that make it stand out among the rest of the indie coming…

    It was fun to watch. For free. Would I spend $13 on it? Not a chance. But I suppose for the sheer entertainment, I’ll give it a 3/5. The effects were pretty good and performances were solid enough.
