JOY REVIEW

Brake is another one of those claustrophobic movies that all of the sudden seems to be very popular where you’ve got some guy trapped and you’re not sure why he’s trapped and it’s dark and he’s trying to escape. So, it’s kind of existential dread. This one’s plot I guessed literally three minutes into it what the story was, and what the setup was. It stars Stephen Dorff, who is very good. This one actually was watchable, and I kind of liked it. I actually got both twists, and hopefully I’m not giving away a whole lot of plot by telling you that there’s more than one twist. But it is interesting and it’s a little less claustrophobic than some of the other ones. I don’t know why people do this — well, I do, because people feel trapped and whatever. Three stars.
