2015 | 15 | DVD A pair of MIT stu­dents driv­ing across the US are lured to a spooky shack in the desert. There they are quar­an­tined and mon­i­tored by un­seen forces from be­hind two- way glass. Suf­fer­ing mys­te­ri­ous phys­i­cal ail­ments, they’re told by Lau­rence Fish­burne’s in­ter­roga­tor that they’re con­tam­i­nated… We said: “Slips el­e­gantly from genre to genre, be­gin­ning as an im­pres­sion­is­tic road movie, segu­ing into para­noid sci- fi, then mor­ph­ing into some­thing com­pletely un­hinged. The three leads give smart, sen­si­tive per­for­mances through­out the weird­ness, aided by a gor­geous score, Mal­ick- alike cin­e­matog­ra­phy, and some ex­tra­or­di­nary prac­ti­cal ef­fects.”
