We havent seen a really good revenge movie since Ai, I was waiting for something great to come along and Wrath is it. It was written and directed by Sam Hendi, the same person who brought us Gone. Unlike Gone which holds its plot elements close to its chest, Wrath goes straight for the jugular.
Hyette Duffy plays a scorned lover who has kidnapped the woman (Tracy Villiers) who she believes seduced her partner and forced him to cheat. The action builds steam as it segways from a low-key monologue to full out verbal assault as Hyette tears into her rival and we start to see that maybe, just maybe this woman has a few more problems than a cheating spouse.
This film skirts the line between a character sketch and torture porn, and it chooses the right side, side-stepping violence and replacing it with a carefully crafted look at Hyettes rapid descent into madness.
Once again, Sam leaves us with answered questions but much like in Gone its better that way.
Its fast paced without being frenzied, a stunningly well made interpretation of the classic interrogation scene. (Pacing 4.5)
Hyette is incredibly good in her role as the scorned lover, its a performance worth watching even if there wasnt any movie around it. (Watchability 5)
Its the acting and script that brings this film up, the plot elements have been seen a thousand times before but very rarely executed this well. (Novelty 3.5)
Rachel has a dark secret and must reveal it to Kate, but will Kate understand.
Starring Jessica Edwards and Kerry Stanley
Filmed with a Sony HVR-V1E Camera and Letus35 Extreme Adapter. 28mm and 50mm Nikon Lenses.
Also using a Proam DVC250 Camera Crane and a Glideshot Dolly Track.
My first time using my Letus35 Extreme, and Camera Crane and Dolly Track
Unfortunately, my dolly track shots are shakey because my tripod is too light to hold my camera however, i have a new tripod which now gives me smooth shots which can take the weight of my camera.My crane shots were also shakey because my camera was too heavy and i need to place heavier weights on the end which i havent bought yet. I also need a new mic since im using my camera mic and it gives me quite a 'flat' sound.
