Would Hitchcock be proud of this?
Netflix’s latest crime thriller is a riveting neo-noir that sees Jesse Plemons as an obnoxious tech billionaire and Lily Collins as his beautiful but unfulfilled wife who arrive at their vacation house only to find it being robbed by a burglar (Jason Segel).
Let’s see what the viewers are saying:
Viewers, especially Alfred Hitchcock lovers, are finding this a treat.
Such an impactful movie that some can’t stop thinking about it.
A thriller that’s light on action and gore, and more dependent on dialogue and music to deliver the thrills.
The tense music makes this movie extra suspenseful.
Someone created a mashup of this movie and Jesse Plemons’ other famous movie, The Power of The Dog.
The Hitchcockian force is strong with this one.
The movie is one of the few confined-space thrillers (like Don’t Breathe) that has come out in recent times.
Seems Segel is the chief attraction of the movie, reminding some of Burt Reynolds’ character.
But some were definitely not pleased with the lack of background story and the spark behind the wife’s motivation.
This is how some people chose to make sense of that unexpected and unexplained ending.
Some also felt that the movie was too long for the content it had.
