An intense thriller that delivers more than you'd expect., 9 July 2000
Arlington Road has the virtue of being a film that you've probably never heard of and know even less about, both of which work in it's favour. Without giving the plot away too much, Jeff Bridges plays Michael Faraday, a University lecturer with an obsession with terrorism after the death of his wife in field of duty with the F.B.I. When his new neighbour, played by the increasingly sinister Tim Robbins moves in, Farady is quick to assume that there is more to his new best friend that meets the eye. Is it paranoia or is there a genuine reason for concern? Whatever you expect from Arlington Road, it will deliver. A well structured and clever film that always leave you second guessing, the lack of features is more than made up for with intense sound that really makes use of the rear speakers in surround sound systems.
