Sci -Fi drama. Exellent idea. The only negative is it lacked tension in many scenes until I was reminded of the pretext (the hidden person in the room) and then it became a really tense and dark reality again. So either I didn't concentrate hard enough or the narrative structure wasn't balanced enough to keep things in mind that would have elevated the movie. The movie also felt a little long because of this. The story never stepped into the ridiculous which was a good thing. Its a brilliant look at media invasiveness, morality and entertainment exploitation. The movie predicted reality TV bang on. If you're thinking of watching it give it a go and see what you think.
