Great film. It’s been a long time since I’ve sat on the edge of my chair for such a long time. The only scene I didn’t like was the one where Alex is calling Michael Douglas names on that tape, it sort of deflated her character.
The score was very effective too.
And the audio description needs a special mention as well. WGBH produced it, so naturally, it was full of descriptions of camera angles, points of view etc. I just love that approach. Especially in this film, the ‘we see Alex staring at us from behind tactic’ worked so well, even though I have no idea what it all looked like. Britain should do this too.
