Open Windows: Movie Review

Look at Elijah Wood going all high-tech and shit! Last we knew of him he was trying to break a ring!

“Open Windows boasts of one of the strongest setups in a film I’ve seen all year.

Nacho Vigalondo – popularly known for his acclaimed 2007 Spanish-language film debut in TimeCrimes (Los Cronocrímenes) – directs this film, starring the very-talented-but-not-so-much-in-luck Elijah Wood (The Lord of the Rings franchise) and Sasha Grey.

Now there’s a lot of curiosity over Sasha Grey’s involvement – by a specific set of audience for a specific set of reasons, if you know what I mean! Let me, however, state to those of you not in the loop of things, that she’s not entirely all that new to the scene. Besides doing some horror-thrillers (Would you Rather) and slasher flicks (Smash Cut), she’s known widely for some of her more engaging roles of the likes of Steven Soderbergh’s (the Ocean’s trilogy) The Girlfriend Experience. So for people to write her off as just a former pornographic actress without knowing too much of her mainstream acting career would be a shame, wouldn’t it?

Plus, for a film that gives a slightly more dynamic approach to what’s really close to the found footage genre, one would – at the very least, out of curiosity – love to see what’s Vigalondo got in store for us.
