The movie, "Following," is a psychological mystery thriller that was composed thoughtfully. It has somewhat of a slow start, which is understandable because the director delivered important information at the beginning of the film that pays off later.
The film meets all the important elements that make a high-quality mystery thriller. Fans of the mystery genre will love this film. The plot well written and unorthodox. Most people would not be able to guess the ending.
It is a visually stunning film with a visual style that complements the internal theme of the movie. It is a black and white film noir style. The lighting in this movie definitely sets the mood for the viewing audience. The shots vary between long shots, close-ups, medium shots, and some American shots. The closeup shots and medium shots are intimate and provide insight into the characters emotional state and behaviors to stimuli.
The characters in "Following" are unique and well developed. The characters were intriguing and enjoyable to watch as they navigate the obstacles created in the storyline.
Overall I rate this film a 10 out of 10.
I recommend this movie to anyone that wants view a thoughfuly directed and written psychological mystery thriller.
