Audience Reviews for Closet Land

A brilliant movie, you'll be astounded that there were only two actors in the entire film. Rickman's best performance ever! I loved this movie. The story is a bit far fetched, but it's sorta surreal too. I highly recommend this movie.

Sadistic!Rickman porn brought to you by Amnesty International!

Really brilliant, but by no means a fun or a light film to watch because of some of the scenes (not because of what it shown, but what it left unshown) and the underlying message.

Some interesting mind games between Rickman and Stowe with some actual interrogation/torture techniques make this intriguing.
