User Review


Rating: 9/10

Although this is a complete departure from Rami's Mr. Robot role, there were still some common themes shared by both projects (especially with respect to mind games).

It was hard to see him so dejected and beaten by his circumstances. What a a masterclass performance! The best performances were Rami (he carried the entire pic) and DJ Qualls provided superb support.

CANNOT wait to see what's next for Rami!

A shoutout to the cinematographer is also mandatory in the review of this film. The cinematography was breathtaking and crisp.

Loved, loved, loved it!
