The perfect example of a film which audiences simply won't appreciate because it takes it's time setting a stunning, terrifying mood before building up to the riveting climax. I absolutely love this film. I've watched it once the full way through, and I went back to key points of the film to look for things which I had missed. There is so much to be found here for someone keeping a close eye, and a lot of what is found is to be admired.

This has to be one of the most underrated films out there, just brilliant the full way through. The photography of every scene, the amazing settings, the infrequent but sharp dialogue and the eery score make up what is a truly fantastic film. The ending left me shaken and profoundly affected.

A very different role for George Clooney, but it works. The film is slow in its build up, but it's wonderfully made and has some great scenes.
