(Look what I found in drafts!)
To snatch the last few minutes of my lunch break…
The film is absolutely brilliant. Creepy. Weird. Cringy. Adrenaline producing.
Geoff was struck by the ‘old people/lonely’ thing where as I clued in to the absolute rampant instance of emotional manipulation.
I know what it’s like to be both an observer, a middle-man and I’m sure even a participant in an emotionally manipulative situation. And it’s horrible (a pretty clear theme in the movie) when it gets out of hand or even tries to creep in under the splits in a little miscommunication and unexplained expectation.
This is rooted in selfishness and fear.
I hate it for what it does to both parties.
