This movie is basically a character study of a deep damaged man who loses control. It's subtle and slow building, but still powerful. Really well acted.

The whole time watching was mostly spent saying- "i bet the only way this guy was cast and this movie was made was because he was in charge of those choices" and ....BLAM #truth

A one-time fling turns into a terrifying ordeal for Danielle when her co-worker, Paul, becomes deeply obsessed with her in Alex Karpovsky's chilling new thriller, RUBBERNECK. RUBBERNECK takes us deep inside the mind of a man obsessed in a stunning character study that is sure to strike a nerve. All of the risks and excitement that accompany an office romance are given a frightful twist, from the initial fear of discovery to the uncomfortable aftermath of exposure. The characters are all carefully crafted and placed into a real-world setting that is utterly believable. Karpovsky brings a raw emotion and intensity to the role of Paul in one of the most naturalistic performances we have seen in years. Jaime Ray Newman is fantastic as well in her depiction of the career-minded woman who remains unrestrained by the thoughts and expectations of others. Although many of her actions are painted in a negative light, they are always true to her character, and are delivered with brutal honesty. Subtle moments like Paul's intrusion on Danielle's lunchtime chat constantly teem with tension and unease, while the stalking scenes draw out revolting feelings of disgust. Still, one can't help but share in a sense of pity and remorse for Paul, who has clearly suffered from issues of rejection and abandonment his entire life. RUBBERNECK is a devastatingly dark and depressing drama which serves as a crowning achievement for Alex Karpovsky as both actor and director.

Alone With Her was lurid and creepy. This isn't.
