Description

Reed (Christopher Abbott) is going on a business trip. He kisses his wife and infant son goodbye, but in lieu of a suitcase filled with clothes, he's packed a toothbrush and a murder kit. Everything is meticulously planned: check into a hotel and kill an unsuspecting victim. Only then will he rid himself of his devious impulses and continue to be a good husband and father. But Reed gets more than he bargained for with Jackie (Mia Wasikowska), an alluring call girl who arrives at his room. First, they relax and get in the mood, but when there's an unexpected disruption, the balance of control begins to sway back and forth between the two. Is he seeing things? Who's playing whom? Before the night is over, a feverish nightmare will unfold, and Reed and Jackie will seal their bond in blood.

    Buy this fast-paced flick. Support young next-level fearless filmmakers who aren’t interested in making safe slow Oscar-noms. Watched this film at 4 am & did not fall asleep. Compelling, sexy, stylish, grotesque, with nods to yung Wes Anderson & Tarantino. A work of art, a satisfying snack. Grade: A+

    A big fan of Abbott’s and Mia’s but this one just didn’t do it for me. The trailer made it seem more fast paced than it actually is. A verrrry slow burner but great performances almost redeem it completely. Wait for Netflix.

    True old school Cronenberg jump off. Takes risks that most young filmmakers don’t have the balls to think about much less execute. Loved it.

    I applaud the bold, irony with whats going on here, but felt that the experimental side of the film robbed me of investment. And, it had potential of story and plot, but fell short leaving merely a mess of interpretation.
