The black and white picture and the 4:3 format, make this movie feel old, classic, a piece of art, reminding me a lot of Ingmar Bergman’s “The Seventh Seal”. It also reminded me a bit of that episode from The Twilight Zone.From a technical point of view, the movie is a masterpiece, being almost entirely filmed inside.

Regarding the Oscar nominations, Denzel’s acting is stellar, the production design is absolutely brilliant, and the cinematography is great, all of these being strong contenders for the statue. However, I’m not a huge theater fan, so the movie didn’t click particularly for me, but I wasn’t disappointed in seeing it, as it’s pretty well-paced.
