Elijah Wood plays a master pianist who gives a comeback performance and realized that there's a gun pointed at him demanding he not miss one note. It's a very Hitchcockian suspense story masterfully told. This might be my favorite of the fest this year. It's such a swiss clock of a movie made up of individually remarkable pieces that consolidate into a great viewing experience.

Incidentally, I heard more people say it was DePalma-ian than Hitchcockian. Why? There's one split screen shot in the movie, is that it? Gah.

My DePalma pecodillo aside, that one shot is obscenely great. It's a flashy technocrane deep focus shot that match cuts to matching static/zoom shots in split screen. Oh man...

Gush gush gush. I'm shocked that was really Elijah playing and not some digital hand transplant. It's a great movie. loved it.
