Twitter Capsule: Sort of Siberian Sound Studio: a lurid thriller with wit, craft, and a clever conceit. Even functional passages click.

VOR:   A popping good time, even as it operates under fairly clear influences (De Palma, giallo). Impressively offers us more than its silent-protagonist conceit.
