A creepy number, half suspense drama and half brooding character study, with a strong dash of local flavor and a low-budget feel.
Karpovsky's pic seldom surprises, its strengths lying in a leisurely journey toward a clearly predestined denouement.
One can only watch so many shots of the daily goings-on in a research facility without tuning out a bit.
Immediately put me in mind of the classic slow burn of vintage thrillers like Fritz Lang's "M" and Michael Powell's "Peeping Tom"...
It's dragged down by non-scene after non-scene, and filmmaking choices that don't earn their keep.
Both the mystery and the character piece wind up feeling incomplete.
Alex Karpovsky's performance digs out the character's menacing, damaged and sympathetic qualities in equal measure.
A disturbing and deceptively subtle psychological thriller ...
"Rubberneck" charts Paul's mental deterioration, the tension stretched well beyond his breaking point and my patience.
Boston-area actor-writer-director Alex Karpovsky creates an original story of obsession, delusion and murder that is fresh and well made.
With Hitchcockian self-assurance, Karpovsky is able to inject an element of surprise and uncertainty even into the film's final moments.
The film takes on high-concept ideas that it can't sustain, and which only make its other problems more obvious.
