Movie Info

Months after a weekend fling, Boston research scientist Paul (Alex Karpovsky, "Girls") continues to lust after his beautiful coworker Danielle (Jamie Ray Newman), nurturing his fantasies with the occasional polite exchange at work. But once she starts dating another scientist at their lab, his infatuation quickly turns into obsession - and he finds himself unable to control his desires. A slow-burn character study-turned-psychosexual thriller, co-written by Karpovsky and Garth Donovan, RUBBERNECK is a chillingly believable story of workplace romance gone wrong. (c) Tribecamore

Critic Reviews for Rubberneck

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (12)

A creepy number, half suspense drama and half brooding character study, with a strong dash of local flavor and a low-budget feel.

Karpovsky's pic seldom surprises, its strengths lying in a leisurely journey toward a clearly predestined denouement.

One can only watch so many shots of the daily goings-on in a research facility without tuning out a bit.

Immediately put me in mind of the classic slow burn of vintage thrillers like Fritz Lang's "M" and Michael Powell's "Peeping Tom"...

It's dragged down by non-scene after non-scene, and filmmaking choices that don't earn their keep.

Both the mystery and the character piece wind up feeling incomplete.
