      Brad Newsome Sydney Morning Herald A mostly engrossing mystery-thriller anchored by terrific performances by Rachael Blake and Susie Porter, though in the end it's a little unmoored by its own unnecessary tricksiness. Jul 19, 2018 Full Review Eddie Cockrell Variety "The Second" is a sexy and satisfying thriller that toys with time, memory and the provocative side of storytelling. Jul 10, 2018 Full Review Luke Buckmaster Guardian This remains, despite the onerous intellectualising, an engaging perspective explored with energy and verve. Rated: 3/5 Jul 4, 2018 Full Review Adrian Martin ScreenHub From the recent batch of Australian movies, this thriller is one of the most arresting and sophisticated. Jun 26, 2020 Full Review Blake Howard Graffiti With Punctuation Director Mairi Cameron creates an prestige aesthetic that affects a sense of haunting isolation, and writer Stephen Lance's script manipulates time and memory to weave a disturbing tale of creation. What secrets are entangled in this fiction? Rated: 4/5 Sep 23, 2018 Full Review David 'Mad Dog' Bradley Adelaide Review Mairi Cameron's feature debut is a pretentious psychodrama with a strong cast struggling to sex it up and a sneaking suspicion that we're all being infuriatingly misled.

      Audience Member In this era of Metoo, do we really need another movie of woman dressing provocatively in the office and acting this way? It is really denigrating and objectifying woman. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
