Well, that’s where Room begins its journey, and it continues on into their struggle to weave themselves into the outside world. Much of the story examines the ugliest things we are capable of doing to each other, the explosive damage that can turn ... read more

I've heard many great things about this, but to be honest I didn't even actually know about it until it was released. The subject matter sounds disturbing, depressing, and intense. I don't know why I didn't check this out sooner. Plus to note it has quite an excellent cast. Oh Leonard Abrahamson also directed Frank which was an interesting movie itself. It seems this guy likes to deal heavily with... read more

A very good movie

Since I kept hearing some really good things about this movie, I was quite eager to check it out but, to be honest, I thought it would be just another drama about a young woman held in captivity. Well, what I didn't expect is that it would turn out to be the best movie in this genre. Indeed, the whole thing was just so intense and heartbreaking and I'm pretty sure I will keep thinking about it dur... read more

Claustrophobic beauty

“That review summary may sound very oxymoronic, but to me it applies to a film such as 'Room'. A film with a difficult subject, that is the stuff of nightmares, but tells it so beautifully with an interesting approach that works better than all the potential traps that films of its genre could fall under.

What could have easily have been told in a lurid, gratuitous way (being inspired by the true-life case of Josef Fritzl) is instead told in a careful and restrained way. There is even an innocence in 'Room', due to its very fascinating decision to tell it from the viewpoint of a five year old, in this case Jack, one that comes off very movingly and gives a sense that there is a little ray of hope in a seemingly hopeless situation. The source material, equally brilliant, is to be t” read more
