Confusion mars a potentially thrilling evening
by Stuart Munro
There are simply too many unanswered questions.
The result is a mildly unsettling evening about, apparently, nothing. Our two eponymous characters appear to have some sort of history, but that’s never properly expanded on. (It’s only three-quarters of the way through that we learn they’re best friends.) There have apparently been a number of deaths in both their recent pasts, but even this is uncertain. And who on earth is Violet? Eckhart’s sister? Wife? Daughter? There are simply too many unanswered questions. Where the script does shine is in the too-few stories that the two tell to each other (and occasionally the audience) which often tend to be thinly veiled metaphors for one another.
