Critic Reviews for Scalene
This methodical thriller becomes doubly troubling by ensuring that all of its pieces, in the final appraisal, don't fit together.
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.
More concerned with the novelty of its three-act, "three-perspective" structure than with how that structure actually functions.
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.
