Those who see "Nope" might not get exactly what they’re expecting but they may enjoy it anyway.

It plays out as expected without ever being predictable - a bold, uncompromising film that doesn’t self-censor.

Run Time: 1:34
U.S. Release Date: 2021-12-17
MPAA Rating: "R" (Sexual Content, Profanity, Disturbing Themes)
Genre: Drama
Director: Lauren Hadaway
Cast: Isabelle Fuhrman, Amy Forsyth, Dilone, Jonathan Cherry, Kate Drummond

The escapism on offer here isn’t of a light and airy nature but instead provides insight into the darker, obsessive aspects of the human experience.

The end result is unsettling and reminiscent of what Hitchcock might have done with this premise.

Effective as an ode to cynical realism but it’s uneven at best as a slice of drama.

The film’s occasional overreaches aren’t always a negative; the high points are very high and, when it’s all over, most viewers will remember them.

A quietly intense alternative to generic horror movies that provides its share of scares without the need to splatter the screen with blood and viscera.

"Nine Days" is a pure allegory; the film works as an extended philosophical rumination but fails as a story.

Soderbergh constructs a masterful tale of escalating crime, filled with anti-heroes, outright villains, and low-key twists at every turn.
