While occasionally unpleasant, the film never crosses the line from bearably chilling to unbearably gruesome, keeping its characters credible and its events explicable.
The resolution of its conflicting truths proves so bizarre and idiotically off-the-wall that it mitigates all that precedes it.
Strong performances and a Hitchcock-trained eye build unnerving tension into its depiction of the intimate stress of caring for an invalid and the ways people might or might not crack under it.
...gives you three absolutely nonequivalent views of a horrifying event, in a sort of a Rashomon for our times.
This methodical thriller becomes doubly troubling by ensuring that all of its pieces, in the final appraisal, don't fit together.
