    It's entertainment in an old fashioned way.
    It seems a lot of reviewers read the book first and cannot reconcile the two. Fortunately I did not so am just rating it as a thriller. It's a mixture certainly, of Rear Window, Psycho, Gaslight and other Hitchcock type mystery thrillers but I had a really good time watching.

    Fantastic cast here headed by the always wonderful Amy Adams and backed up by Gary Oldman, Julianne Moore and Jennifer Jason Leigh.

    Lots of great photography, considering it all takes place in one house. It is at times quite creepy and leaves you wondering whether Anna (Adams) is a schizo or not. You will have to watch to find out. Overall, don't read or compare to the book, just enjoy.

    Planing to watch it?
    The movie is truly extraordinary. It has twists, thrillers, suspense, and the actors' performances, especially Amy Adams' acting, were enviable. Moreover, the cinematography of the movie was genuinely thought-provoking, which kept the audience engaged until the end.

    Despite how good the movie is, I found a flaw. We know that the main character of the movie is a patient of Agoraphobia, but as the movie progresses, we can learn that there is another mental problem of the main character. I won't reveal the problem since it will be a spoiler. However, it seemed like the director forgot about that problem as the story went on, and I was thinking about it until the end. The director didn't give any hint about the problem, even when the movie ended.

    If we disregard this issue, the movie is genuinely extraordinary.

    Kept me guessing
    I don't understand the bad reviews. I feel like people expect too much from movies nowadays. If you like physiological thrillers then watch this one. The acting was great and the pacing was just right. The entire movie has very few characters and takes place in one house, so don't expect it to be a fast paced action movie or anything. I watch a lot of movies, so I usually have a good idea where the story is going, but this one threw me off. It kept me guessing the whole time. This is one of the better Netflix movies I've watched in a while. Don't listen to the bad reviews, cue up Netflix and put this movie on for your evening's enjoyment.

    From homage to shlock
    Where to start? This movie seems to be made by two separate movie crews, that never met or spoke to each other. It starts as an interesting homage to classic film noir. There is a frozen shot from " Rear Window", Hitchcock's masterpiece from 1954 on a TV set. We see snippets from other beloved jewels from that era like "Laura" and few others. The cast is strong, above all, Julianne Moore in exceptional form in her short appearance. And then the disaster strikes. For some unfathomable reason the movie turns into a trashy, horror shlock from the 1980's. All the logic and common sense leaves the room, and we are somehow expected to lap it up. Well, I didn't.
