A middle-aged Texas mother slowly buckling under the constant demands of modern life sets out on a strange quest after experiencing vivid visions of a sprawling urban loft in director Kyle Henry's haunting tale of modern malaise.

With Christmas rapidly approaching and her personal happiness at an all-time low, Julia begins to experience an increasingly painful series of migraines that

Gadually it slips into the indie paradigm of an alienated soul rushing into darkness, climaxing with a semiabstract montage sequence that's more rhetorical than dramatic.

It ... may be the longest 75-minute film in the history of cinema -- there was a clock check 25 minutes in, after thinking 'this has got to be almost over.'

Expertly moody and foreboding, Room is somewhat less than the sum of its parts, but is nonetheless compelling viewing along the way.

Williams gives a superb performance that recalls Ellen Burstyn's in Darren Aronfsky's much-praised Requiem for a Dream.

A small-scale indie with bountiful ambitions, this resourceful debut ballasts a great deal of conceptual idiosyncrasy ... with strict observations of personality, behavior and the textures of space.

Kyle Henry's Room is one of those rare American indies that confidently and successfully propose their own narrative logic, drawing viewers into a mental puzzle that may not contain a single clear solution.

A performance de Williams é corajosa e intensa, mas o diretor-roteirista cria um drama existencialista pós-11 de Setembro bobo sobre o constante estado de medo do norte-americano médio e sua busca desesperada por algum tipo de válvula de escape.

Henry's film is beautifully shot and extraordinarily well acted by Williams, whose face alone says everything about the plight of working mothers who can no longer make ends meet.

Cyndi Williams's performance in Kyle Henry's Room is a searing articulation of post-traumatic stress disorder.

It isn't an easy film, but the world's already got plenty of easy and easily digestible films. Nervy and confounding pictures, however, we could use more of.

Writer-director Kyle Henry's debut feature is a tedious tease that parades assorted sensations and signifiers past the audience for nearly an hour and a half before sputtering out in a rush of incomprehensible visual noise.
