The Cry Of The Owl - 2009 - 5/10
Peculiar thriller, with absurd plotholes and unanswered questions.
Troubled man, going through a divorce, begins peeping on single woman living in isolated woods.
She catches him, invites him inside. They talk. Two beats later, she now stalks him!
At one point a character disappears. Where to? How?
The film feels unfinished. Characters are barely more than empty cartoons.
There is no understanding of any relationship, let alone a single character’s behavior.
Felt like 15 minutes of plot were shaved. From Patricia Highsmith novel.
