    This was...I don't want to say a lot of "fun" to watch. This was...uncomfortably good. Makes you squirm in the seat and feel awkward. This movie also wasn't exactly what I was expecting, so the feeling that I knew everything by watching the preview was good. Yes, some of it was quite predictable, but damn, was it a good watch. The directing in particular was spot on, but the acting and writing weren't far behind at all. Glad I forked out the dough.
