What I liked:
Beautifully shot, edited and graded. Serious quality all-around.
The sound design was incredible, and the score was exceptional.
Auckland must have had some outrageously good films for this to not receive any accolades.
Great acting by the two female leads, with the young one doing another fine job this year.
I loved how you got the dog to walk through the scene before launching into it.
I don't know if you planned that, but it was an amazing detail.
Great typeface used throughout and very fine credits.
What I didn't like:
While it was a good vehicle for demonstrating that Morgan was facilitating cheating,
I'm never a fan of sex scenes in 48HOURS entries, non-explicit as most of them may be (yours included).
The ending was unsatisfying, particularly after such a lush story and build-up to that point.
I guess that's the way it goes with a lot of 48HOURS films,
but it's sad to see in a film that was otherwise super on-point.
Great work all-around, though.
