Review: It’s atmospheric, but it does little to tell the viewer what the film is about or why they should even see it. Advertising needs to work as advertising, not just as a piece of artistic expression.

Trailer Rating: C-

Review: Cobbled together from scraps of plot, the film looks as if it’s trying to be odd just for the sake of it without establishing the stakes well enough to suggest it might be worth watching.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
