Joe Wright directs Amy Adams, Gary Oldman and Wyatt Russell in this suspense thriller where an unreliable shut-in thinks she’s witnessed a murder across the street… but then again she does watch a lot of Hitchcock.
Dolls Houses. Theatrical staging. Grating operatic flourishes. The least claustrophobic of claustrophobic settings. Obvious twists. Obvious reshoots. A fantastic cast, all collecting the Devil’s dollar. Given the noticeable plummet in Amy Adams ability to pick a good project recently I hope she hasn’t made a pact with old Hob that is now well past due. Boring.
