OK.. so you heard every award it won!! It won a lot. Here’s my take on it (yes I waited till last). If you love deeply intense psycho-dramas (emphasis on the PSYCHO ), you will love this film. I love dramas- I am not a huge fan of serial killers– and that’s the bottom line. Is it well-acted? Absolutely! Is it for PG 13 or younger? No way! Is it for the squeamish or those who get nightmares- (and yes some of us grown ups are haunted by films.), not in this lifetime.
