  • Real-life details culled from ex-members' accounts of life in groups like Scientology and NXIVM give the film an edgy ripped-from-the-headlines quality, as well as reinforcing the sheer L.A. of it all.

  • All of this boldness pays off-the film's third act might end at an expected place, but 1BR stands out with how it gets there, and the unique horror along the way.

  • The premise remains intriguing enough to make "1BR" a qualified success, albeit one whose ideas sometimes cry for a more adventuresome and assertive treatment.
