      Tathi T THIS MOVIE WAS AMAZING!!! EYE OPENING AND LOW KEY TELLING THE TRUTH ABOUT HOW THIS WORLD IS MANAGED. LOVED IT. TENÍA QUE SER EL DIRECTOR DE SUICIDE ROOM PZ. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/15/23 Full Review Jen Was very impressed by it. Especially the lead actor, Maciej Musiałowski, was excellent. Very well paced. Just very impressed I wish I knew Polish to watch more works by all involved. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/13/23 Full Review T T Excellent Polish movie. This is the third Polish movie I see and I have to say I am really impressed. This is was a very entertaining movie. Despite running for 136 minutes, I was engaged from the beginning till the end. Great acting, solid storyline, solid plot, and good cinematography. Well done. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/08/23 Full Review andrew k Really enjoyed this film. Thomas is a very interesting character . Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Kat M Suspenseful thriller takes you into the world of a psychologically disturbed young man A series of disappointments cause a young man to take his exploits and efforts too far. Or was he always disturbed? Terrifying and exciting, very dark. This Polish film is shocking and yet quite artfully crafted. The lead actor's deadpan demeaner as he leads the audience through one shocking scenario after another, is great acting. He will stop at nothing to get the job done, as he escalates into one final desperate act. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/09/23 Full Review solomon i One of the best movies I have seen in a long time, it stood out for the intricate yet still fantastic story of a young man who seems to know something we don't, and it really carries you to unexpected places throughout. Half star off because some of the story is a bit of a gimmick like the social media backstory IMO Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Tim Cogshell FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) [Maciej Musialowski] is a wonderful actor... He has a way of contorting his face. He tells the story behind his eyes. Aug 13, 2020 Full Review Christy Lemire FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) It could not be more relevant on a couple of different levels... [And] it is so suspenseful. Aug 13, 2020 Full Review Steve Pond TheWrap The film drags on until the story becomes harder to buy and the central character harder to remain interested in; at a certain point, Tomasz stops being fascinating or even threatening, and simply becomes tiresome. Jul 29, 2020 Full Review Luis Fernando Galván En Filme An intense thriller that exposes the toxicity, manipulation, and threat of defamatory social media tactics. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 4/5 Jun 1, 2021 Full Review Carlos Bonfil La Jornada Tomasz Giemza is... a fascinating character. [Full review in Spanish] Jan 11, 2021 Full Review Yasser Medina Cinefilia It is, in my opinion, one of the most provocative social thrillers of the year.
