This is a bad movie. The plot does seem interesting but the scriptwriting was absolutely terrible. There wasn't a whole lot to do with the directing, other than a lot of out of focus shots that tells a small piece of the story. Unfortunately, nothing else is done with the directing to advance the rest of the plot. The acting is as good as you can get with a terrible script. Stephen Dorff, Michelle Monaghan, and Willem Dafoe give decent performances but if the movie was in better hands, the performances may have been a lot better. Definitely not worth the rent.
