Dare you look at your other side? When Neil meets Heather it is love at first sight… They enjoy a whirlwind romance and revel in how happy they are… Until they run into Machlis… Parallel is an erotic and chilling psychological drama with a distinctly new approach and a killer twist!
If you have seen “Fringe” then “Parallel” is a must for you. Honestly, at the beginning little insecure acting by Faye but as the movie goes by she gets into her role. Would definitely criticize the music which I think would contribute a lot to the whole picture of the movie if more attention was payed to it. All actors could’ve worked better to get more into their roles, the only one that seems to got over that is Daniel. Also, paying more attention on the details and having like a back story and not only the main story would make a huge difference and bring the movie to a whole new level.
On the other hand the story is amazing, seems like nothing is happening but at the moment you think to turn it off, something keeps you wanting to find out what will happen. And then it is like everything happens in a blink of an eye. You don’t even have enough time to process what happened. Loved how direct the director is and not wasting my time by making scenes unnecessary long.
Love the last 20 minutes when everything is direct and you can’t get bored at all. A lot of high budget movies should learn from Parallel and not just prolonging the runtime with unnecessary scenes. Again the story is amazing, and most of all the end is unexpected. Would’ve rate the movie with 2 or 3 stars but the last 20 minutes were 8 out of 10. Definitely will recommend to any true movie lover.
