Marina Antunes [Celluloid 09.13.13] Spain action thriller



I love me some Nacho Vigalondo weirdness. The Timecrimes and Extraterrestrial (reivew) writer/director shares some of my strange sensibility but I'm just not sure how well the concept of Open Windows will work.

Elijah Wood plays a guy who wins dinner with a hot actress of the day (porn star Sasha Grey is a pretty great casting choice here) but at the last moment, the contest is cancelled and Woods is left without his dinner date that is, until some guy posing as the star's manager, apparently feeling sorry for the guy, gives him clues on where to find the actress. At least that seems to be what's going on here.


Yes, I'll likely give this a chance because of the Vigalondo good will but I sure as hell hope this doesn't become the next found footage thing. It's definitely an interesting concept and I like the idea that the viewer is brought in as a voyeur by the simple act of watching the movie on their own screen (even more brilliant if this was only available via VOD). Bring it on.
