Hypnotic, brooding, noir romance with Poots as a mesmerizing femme fatale. Startling investigation into the nature of obsession.

A very average film that has two very good actors in Micheal Shannon and Imogen Poots who deserved a better story for their characters. A dark slow moving film noirish film about the volatile relationship between the lead couple where a deep dark secret in Poots' past leads to complications. The biggest problem is that there is zero chemistry between Shannon and Poots or maybe Shannon is just not a very good leading man. Though it was nice to see Rosanna Arquette again kind of camping it up here.

Make this film in 1945, film it in black and white with a 4x3 aspect ratio, and some how get around the Hays Code (like make it in Europe) and you have a genre of film noir that has never been made. You got all the lies, the femme fatale, the fat man from "The Maltese Falcon." I'm not saying it is even close to that film, but would be the style. I suspect that a lot of the negative reviews on the library website are from people turned off by the possibility of rape or sex games. The inclusion of art house actors Emanuelle Devos and the late Michael NvQvist suggest that it is not just a one star film. Can anyone tell me, are the last few frames there to show that the film has two possible opposite endings?

A very uninteresting movie. The characters were unrealistic, the story very weak, I am not sure what all the movie was about.

I didn't like the film , the performance of Michael Shannon as Frank was not convincing at all he doesn't transmit any feeling, grey character, the story is very poor. Imogen Poots (Lola) not convincing. The story is full of common places. Michael Nyqvist as the millionaire obsessed man is average. Maybe the direction was not all good or the history. Overrated.
