After innocent Sean Veil (Lee Evans) is found not guilty of a brutal triple murder, he becomes a paranoid recluse, living alone and obsessively filming every moment of his life to always have an alibi. When the body of a woman who disappeared five years prior turns up, stubborn detective Louis Emeric (Sean McGinley) turns his eye toward Veil. When he cannot locate the tapes proving his whereabouts at the time of the murder, Veil's paranoia grows exponentially as he attempts to uncover the truth.

  • Simpson and director of photography Mark Garret manage to place the audience well inside the disoriented, dystopian world inhabited by Veil.

  • Sadly, after a promising opening, John Simpson's feature debut dissolves into a disappointing hodgepodge of risible overacting and transparent plotting.

  • This low budget debut feature swiftly squanders an interesting premise of a man under perpetual self-surveillance to become a garbled and illogical thriller.

  • Evans is wonderfully vulnerable and insidious as the mischievously named Sean Veil.

  • Simpson has a strong idea to work through, a good actor and a great set (a dank Belfast prison) and doesn't squander them -- even if the influence of Darren Aronofsky's Pi is perhaps a little too tangible.

    cool movie.. interesting storyline and ending.. had some great acting as well. some parts were really weird which fitted the whole atmosphere perfectly...... this movie is definatly worth watching!

    An offbeat thriller that is not so far fetched, given that the average person is photographed by surveillance cameras 200 times a day.

    This dark, moody and atmospheric drama is drenched in black and gray shades, almost devoid of color and life. It has an interesting gimmick that is stretched a bit too thin..either the lead character is guilty and is mentally ill, or is innocent and the world is out to get him. The acting by Evans is on spot, however the surrounding cast tries too hard at times, and their performance suffers. The plot is a one trick pony that sustains life by continually twisting and turning, so the viewer is kept wondering till the very end, when more twisting is conducted than a chubby checker song. Orwellian in tone, this film is a fairly original piece of work thats worthy of your attention.

    funnyman lee evans goes serious, in a memento kind of way, a man wrongly convicted of murder, decides to film himself constantly, untill it back fires on him, and he may be getting set up, okay brit thriller not as clever as it thinks it is, but evans holds his own, and a interesting concept
