A centrepiece monologue from Grant on CIA experimentation shows some style, but it's too little, too late, and is rendered moot by the underwhelming climax.
| Original Score: 2/5
A funny film, but not in a ha ha way.
| Original Score: 1/5
Bracewell's lofty ambitions are clear to see in what is an obvious labour of love, but they simply don't come off in a mess of clichés and barely adequate performances.
It's poorly plotted, deeply uninvolving tosh that makes you cringe for Grant and the estimable Tamsin Greig as his colleague and former protégé.
With its unengaging characters and a plot that jacknifes inexplicably, there's little to like here. A thriller without many thrills.
Creepy claustrophobic for a bit, it dissolves quickly into suspenseless drift - not all of it coherent.
[A] workaday psychological thriller which, although decently crafted, lacks even a scintilla of subtlety or ambition.
An alarming head-scratcher, but hopefully a blip for this still-promising creative team.
An unsettling, unconventional and delicately-handled piece quite unlike anything our film industry is pumping out these days.
| Original Score: 4/5
