Rotten: Upsetting that it had to go for the easy genre closer instead of exploring the universal parental mentality that Danika had going for it until the final half-hour.

Rotten: The message is unexplored and eventually buried under an avalanche of cheap shock tactics and pointlessly dizzying visuals.

A haunting, confusing-in-a-good-way film with a surprise twist ending that will sadden you. I so love a movie that I can't see the ending coming from 3 feet away. :) A rarity these days. Good performances by all.

It's hard to talk much about this one without giving the ending away. Suffice to say, Marisa Tomei fans should like this. I don't think the ending makes or breaks the film but it does offer an explanation for things. Danika reminded me of some of the Korean films I've seen recently, the way the genre clues aren't as clear as they are in most American films. Danika mixed some horror-, and mystery-type elements in with the drama to good effect.

This is a movie one must pay close attention to but wouldn't mind, because it is very captivating. This is a convoluted story (not in a bad way), because it is like being in the mind of a schizophrenic. It allows the viewer to see the hallucinations, the paranoia, and the altered reality one would expect from someone with this mental illness. The story twists and turns and does not wrap up in a nice pretty picture. Tomei does a wonderful job interpreting this illness for us, and the supporting cast does a good job keeping up with her.
