GROUNDHOG DAY but short-form with tension as each new path our lead chose still lead to a return to the start, when the sinister tone felt like it was important for her not to be. It just felt a bit like the stakes were never really raised that high, which took away from the impact of the ending. My advice would be if you're ever in a position to do a looping day or timeframe, to not use the exact same footage for your loops. Because you did it felt like the lead actress was just going through the motions, whereas different cuts or takes or angles would allow us to see how getting sent back to the start was affecting her on a more personal level.
