Even when the movie exploits cliches - cue washed-out colors and eerie scraping noises - it exploits them in limited quantities, portioning out only what's required by mood and plot.
Almost all of the film's remarkably static scenes reveal too little and confuse too much.
All dressed up with nowhere to go, the visually adept Apart has a narrative rhythm as disjointed as the personalities of its lead teenagers
To understand Apart's Time-Life Mysteries of the Unknown tommyrot any better, one would need a psychic bond to first-time writer/director Aaron Rottinghaus, for his movie doesn't do much of a job explaining it.
Tries too hard and ends up substituting pretension for punch.
"Apart" is designed to be a so-what- really-happened type of thriller, but since we often know stuff before Noah does, the thrill's sometimes gone by the time you get there.
Handsomely mounted, but far too languid to penetrate the senses in the same mind-blowing manner writer/director Aaron Rottinghaus intends.
"Apart" is only 80 minutes long, but it feels like it goes on for twice that.
Imagine Romeo and Juliet by way of Donnie Darko and you'll have some idea what to expect from this atmospheric story of star-crossed romance with a supernatural twist.
