Review: Faces in the Crowd

Faces in the Crowd
You rated this movie: 4 of 5 Stars
I thought that the acting was superb, don't get why others found it lacking, her fear was more real & credible, her reactions & expressions spot on, can't act better than Milla did here without being an actual victim. Yes, reminds me of Momento & has same intensity, psy thriller more than horror unless you count the close ups of sliced necks with their gore. I guessed the killer early on but only from knowing who to look for from previous experience with such movies, the story does NOT give away who it is at any time. While there were many questions left unanswered and a few plot holes, for the most part, this was an excellent script, actors were perfect for their roles & all did fantastic jobs. The mind games with different faces worked well to give the viewer a sense of how disorienting & fearful the condition can be--although if it has a biological base, why did it only happen after a trauma? I'd recommend watching it, but rent before buying to be sure you want this one first.
