Viewing Notes

A good, solid rewatch considering I couldn’t remember all the little things that add up to make this such a great movie. I love the red and green color palette and the gritty realistic East coast feel.

The seesawing back and forth between doing acts of kindness and acts of terror by the main antagonist are what make this feel grimier and more horrific because you’re on edge and you never know when things are gonna go sideways!
