Admittedly, it’s rare to start a discussion with a list of grievances, but the new thriller “Every Breath You Take,” directed by Vaughn Stein, signed by David Murray, and starring Casey Affleck, begs for it. Significantly like how Affleck’s psychiatrist part deals with his victims, it is fitting to lecture the apparent issues with this movie in a series of bullet features:
In a show that anyhow thinks that existing as obvious as probable will ramp up the confusion unsurprisingly, it doesn’t only the icy visuals by cinematographer Michael Merriman garner considerable attention. While some plot locations will likely bequeath you shaking your acme, the film has the potential to foster compassion and understanding approximately the fact that we all handle our trauma differently. But, unfortunately, a tiresome psychological thriller in a revenge film fails to survive up to its intriguing proposition.
