Olsen delivers an amazing performance and it's tragic seeing her go from a gorgeous young woman to a beautiful basket case. A must see. I've never seen a film that generates such a high level of anxiety by doing so little.
The masterstroke is that Durkin only reveals why Martha is so messed up in flashbacks constructed to mirror her fractured mental state. Olsen plays it with a chilling amount of honesty and the movie creeps up on you and leaves you completely paranoid.
This film has both the strengths and weaknesses of the psychological thriller genre. Mental states are hard to depict. The strength of the genre is that it serves as a showcase for actors. It is a mixed bag, but it does deliver a heavy dose of creepiness.
