What goes on "On the Inside"
Well after viewing this only a few minutes ago I'll try to give an
outline without being emotionally invested. Great acting from Olivia
Wilde and Nick Stahl. The soundtrack was good and the pace was even, as
it built the frame around Stahl's character,as to what he actually did
or did not do to get him locked in the mental facility. Upon
introduction into to Dash Mihok's character Carl, there is an immediate
tenseness brought in as they let his evil be well apparent. Of course
since O.Wilde is housed in the same facility we can guess there will be
some sort of relationship between her and Stahl. Although it wasn't a
film with big "thrills" or serious action it did very good keeping my
attention, I rarely get emotionally involved but found myself caught up
and full of anger at points that I won't mention, I would recommend to
anyone, especially those who are looking for some real raw emotion out
of a film.
Also I need to mention the great job of Pruitt Taylor Vince as he was
great as supporting cast. It's freaky how he makes his eyes go back and
forth so quickly, I just about blinded myself trying to do it *>)
