Good Neighbors

November 18, 2011

The best thing I can say about this film is that it is unpredictable.

The best advice I can give is to not watch the trailer, or look at the pictures on Rotten Tomatoes. I love RT but was bummed that the pics gave away the major plot twists of the film. This is not a great film and won’t make any top ten lists but it does provide a welcome dose of uncertainty. I also dug how it looks good on a budget. The locations are used well and the set design is solid. This film provides a decent lesson of how to maximize every dollar.

The movie focuses on three people living in an apartment in Montreal. Not only do they have to survive a Canadian winter they have a serial killer to deal with.  jay Baruchel, Scott Speedman and Emily Hampshire all provide solid work as the not-so-normal tenants. I wouldn’t say you ever become engaged in the characters but they don’t annoy you. They do just enough to keep you around until the end.

If you are in the mood for a dark indie or just curious to see how well Jay Baruchel fits in a drama check this film out.
