Why all the hype?

The main character is extremely gifted, she is a model which is where she makes money, but she's also a professional poker player, cryptocurrency investor, programmer and an extremely talented hacker, you may think why or how is she such an expert in all this areas but you have to content with the "she's spends all the day at the computer" explanation, she's obsessed with a serial killer who is being charged of brutally killing and recorded the deaths of 3 young girls, but her real obsession is with one of the videos that not even the police was able to find.

One thing about this movie is that by the middle of it, in a scene where she shows to her only friend the 2 snuff movies that she has on her computer that Ludovic (which is the guy that is being prosecuted) is in fact the responsible for murdering the girls, she shows it to her friend who is a fanatic by Ludovic and defends him at any costs until she sees those videos and realize that she was wrong all of the time, and at the end she is even seen at some TV show talking about her 'past' as a ex-fan of Ludovic talking about the reasons of why she thought that he was innocent which is at least an explanation to her obsession.

But at any point is explained why Kelly-Anne is so obsessed with this case, this guy and the lost video, I mean I understand that is a critic of the whole true crime "culture" and the bizarre fascination that some people have with these kind of cases but damn is such a meaningful critic that just don't justify the actions of the character.

Anyway this is at least a beautiful shot film and the direction is also good, the performances of the whole cast was very impressive and I would recommend for anyone to see this movie and take they own conclusion, since is not a bad movie I just don't think it's this good.

Great start, interesting direction, but the plot leaves a lot to be desired.

Film starts with a single shot that lasts minutes, using a Steadicam, no music, showing a courtroom and jumping from the monologue of prosecutor to the defendant and finishing by zooming in to the protagonists face. Plante shows great taste in his direction by borrowing from the best: Hitchcock, Scorsese, Polanski, Kubrick, Fincher.

My main problem was, as other reviewers mentioned, the failure of the script in portraying the main character as a person with, motivation, feelings, values, substance. The story is told from her perspective but we learn nothing about her, thus making her actions and the whole story confusing and meaningless from a psychological standpoint. As the story moves forward, we get more and more confused about what she is doing and mainly "why". I don't have a problem with psychologically ambiguous characters unless their ambiguity has a psychological background.

According to the writer - director, this was a movie about the true crime fans and their obsession with violence. But is this character a real representative of this type of people?

In any case this movie was a breathe of fresh air, especially with tons of mediocre thrillers coming out every week. The soundtrack, cinematography, acting was A-Grade.
