Since the last butaca: The Guilty

Too long to be a trhiller, and too short to be a human drama. Among those of the rumors is this ribbon, a remake of the Danish woman of the same title, produced in 2018 by director Gustav Moller.

Here the subplots seem like contracted animals and the inquiries of the agent within the Call Center are sometimes reiterated. Nevertheless, his protagonist Jake Gyllenhall strives to be the only face in the camera within a minimal space where the three companions, lo lejos, accompany him in this unforgettable dawn.

The person experiences a personal catharsis through an external success that he falls as a guard police. This causes the director to take advantage of the first shots from which his inner gestures and ghosts stand out until they roar into the madness.

A terrifying telephone line serves as an orifice for a report that takes place through you of some characters who have never appeared on the screen. Reports that end up being bored by the reterative.

The face of this policeman is an oral trip to the enajenaciĆ³n. It drags a past that pulls it out of simism, A past from which it hides personal problems that are uncovered as the film progresses. Many questionable is the obsession of this agent with a determined success that he recovers his state of guilt.

Dense emotion. Cuestionable startle.

A free end (with the unnecessary morale included) you come across this ribbon that will soon be forgotten. A better end would be the same as the fires of the city of Los Angeles. Abuse. The thriller imposes itself, but it doesn’t convince. I’m premiering on Netflix.
