Genuinely good mystery, with one gripe...

This review (which absolutely contains spoilers, mind you) is definitely me just complaining about my one issue with the film (and all filmed media in general that seems to take this stance) and should not be considered a review of the entire film, which I generally found genuinely intriguing and very well-made. The very last scene leaves us with the "dead" Alex suddenly appearing to reveal not much more than: the alleged pedophile wasn't one. I watch _a lot_ of stuff. An uncomfortable and, frankly, inappropriate amount of movies and television for someone who doesn't get paid to do so. With that said, I cannot name a single instance where a character painted to be a pedophile actually ended up being one (or ultimately being treated like one), save for Broadchurch (in which season 2 lets him off the hook, so... even that doesn't count). It's unrealistic and, in my humble opinion, a painful disservice to reality. The stance this film takes on the subject is quite subtle and, as I said, very brief, but nonetheless left quite the sour aftertaste. Eric Johnson can't seem to play a good guy for the life of him, so even just seeing his character's first appearance raised a red flag for me. Then there are hints of his characters' previous victimizations of young boys throughout the film, but again, we're left with: he's _actually_ a good guy. Had the writers, producers, film makers, et al. found _any other way_ to paint Alex's parents as the clear bad guys other than making Charlie III an apparent good guy, I would have nothing but good things to say about this one. But, alas.

Unexpected Gem

In Scandinavia, this movie will pass unnoticed, which is really sad, as I think this is a truly well-crafted thriller that should be seen by everyone who wants to get lost in a mystery for an hour and a half on a rainy evening. Moody and beautiful.
