Critic Reviews for Lyle
With a gripping performance by Gaby Hoffmann... the first feature by its writer-director is a winningly unsettling genre exercise whose style and polish belie the constraints of its microbudgeted five-day shoot.
Some potential slow-burn build-up tension is jettisoned which is a shame, but it's certainly refreshing for a non-action film to trim its story down so succinctly.
Competently played all round and with some effective stylistic elements, this is a film that could do with a bit more ambition of its own but that still handles itself well enough, and very impressively indeed for something shot in mere days.
Writer-director Stewart Thorndike works wonders on a micro-budget production shot only in five days. This debut intimates the promise of even greater things to come from Thorndike.
Aided by cinematographer Grant Greenberg's visual mastery, Gaby Hoffman has you on the edge of your seat as her paranoia grows in leaps and bounds, especially as you watch her run through the streets, scamper down staircases, and Skype.
