This was good. Really good. Best thriller I've seen in a very long time. A sort of cross between Octane and the Kurt Russell movie Breakdown: sodium and fluoro lights give it a very effective look, and they've not only acknowledged the existence of the mobile phone, they've incorporated it into the plot all the way through. Film of the weekend.

Hehehe - I kept going on about Breakdown - trying to remember the name. Thanks to the people around me that finally put me (and my boyfriend) out of my misery!

Film of the day for me. A great set up: believable, empathetic characters and a brilliant ‘What would you do?’ moment. Then the tension just kept building. I thought this was fantastic, gripping stuff. The actor who played ‘Zakes’ gave such an honest, raw performance, I was very nearly moved. This film deserves to find a big audience on release. The director’s Q&A was also good, a very enthusiastic guy who obviously loves the genre, top man. I wish I’d have asked my question (I get a bit shy at these things), how did they get the shot where the camera pulled back from the car windscreen and went under the truck?

Really liked this one, a great British 'Road Movie'.

Didn't see the twists coming and just loved so many of the camera shots which enhanced the suspense, particularly the one mentioned above.

Great Q & A from a great guy afterwards and SO refreshing after the previous film.

Yeah it's a shame the dude doesn't visit here, we may get an answer if he pops in hopefully.
Thanks for the ride, sir.
You have lovely sheep.
