It ups the ante on the stalker thriller by incorporating the titular illness into the genre’s already paranoid mix of surveillance and physical violation.
The film’s concern for the reclamation of identity is less important than the dull approximation of The Others’s stark haunted-house atmospherics.
It’s always a pleasure to encounter genre ambition contained in such a sinewy-shot, emotionally resonant, and gorgeously photographed package.
The commentary track by Gregg Araki, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Brady Corbet is not the earth-shattering affair I expected.
It seems to exist in a memory deprivation tank flooded with hyper-saturated recollections and pop-cultural codes.
