Edge-of-Seat Thriller

A good thriller is my favorite genre and I was hooked into this film within the first few seconds and stayed involved for the entire ride. It kept me guessing throughout. The contrast between eerie cop shop and stark, beautiful prairies is a stylish treat for the eyes. The performances are believable and compelling. Well cast, without exception. The little girl is surprisingly good. Her even performance made me wonder about what had happened to her and drew me into the story. When she wasn't on screen, I worried about her safety. The ending is a clever, eerie choice. I was taken completely by surprise and I usually predict a telegraphed ending a mile away. In this case, any other choice would be a cop-out (pardon the pun). I was glad that the director resisted the temptation for a blood-fest. It could have gone much further in that vein. Instead the tension relied upon intelligent visual storytelling. Kudos to everyone involved. I thoroughly enjoyed this film.

Fantastic, Disturbing Thriller

How have I not heard of this movie before? Absolutely fantastic. It's difficult to review a movie by Jennifer Lynch without comparing it to the work of her father. 'Surveillance' possesses the Lynchian small town banality, stilted dialogue, awkward character dynamics, brutal violence, truly twisted killers, and generally off-kilter weirdness that you'd expect. But despite the stylistic similarities, the two are very different filmmakers. 'Surveillance' has a far more traditional structure with a familiar art-house/indie conceit of multiple perspectives and unreliable narrators. The central mystery is expertly revealed through the eyewitness accounts of several individuals, slowly building the sense of dread to a knock-out last act revelation that doesn't disappoint. One of the best thrillers in recent years and deserving of a much larger audience. More than enough evidence that Jennifer Lynch is a talent in her own right.

FriendsLet Me Show You the POWER...of the DARK SIDE!

.........from Pasto,Colombia...Via: L.A. CA., CALI, COLOMBIA and ORLANDO, FL

Jennifer Lynch, daughter of David Lynch (Mullholand Dr....Yes, I can see that!) You can rest assured, with each passing year, Ms. Lynch's name will grow ever more prominent! Several friends have rated this 6*. Hmmm, up front, for the record, 9*; loud and clear, front and center. My prognostication: SURVEILLANCE will soon attain "Cult Classic" status, with legions of aficionados. You heard it here first, from the Id of Dr. Morbius!

Now I'll tell you why. Almost from the very onset, the underlying tension, the nail-biting, sparks-flying friction between characters is hypnotic and entrancingly numbing. Surveillance is beyond dark, to the point of being "Non-commercial"! Now, is that good? Well, you'll have to decide that for yourself!

***** Very MINOR SPOILERS Coming Up! ******

Lots of reviewers have mentioned the "surprise ending". IMHO there are quite obviously 2 back-to-back, from-out-of-left-field plot twists at the end of the movie. Well 3, if you count theOOPS! I can't really say, now can I? Ms. Lynch is really up to snuff on her movie-making technique. Editing, camera-angles, photography, close-ups, and pacing; SUPERB, ALL of them! WOW!

SURVEILLANCE wasn't a .22 Caliber bullet to my brainit was a .45! Blew my mind in one fell swoop! But this film has "POLARIZING" written all over it! From sincere, soul-searching reviewers, we should see lots of either 8 to 10* ratings, or 2* and 3* ones.

The violence, although mostly not extremely graphic, nor taking up much on-screen time, considering the genre, was so pathologically twisted, I'm sure it'll prove too just intense for the likings of many. For this reason, I've had a change of heart, or let's say GUTS, to 8*......ENJOY/DISFRUTELA!
