Slick, Suspenseful Story of Danger, Doubt & Depp.
on 11 May 2016
A psychological thriller and brilliantly assured film that faithfully reproduces the eeriness, chill factor and complexities of the writing by Stephen King and David Koepp. Johnny Depp is on seductively secretive top form as a writer separated from his wife and resisting signing final divorce papers whilst attempting to be creative in an idyllic retreat location. But tortured memories and indistinct realities forbid him any real peace. As lives are examined the plot unfolds and your enjoyment is assured. Particularly superb supporting work is in evidence by the convincing and much under appreciated John Turturro, who adds significantly to the film's realism and suspense. Buy this movie - it's one for anyone's collection.
