3/5 62% Kurt & Courtney (1998) Does not seem very unbiased. You are left to draw your own conclusions. But it certainly is an interesting 94 minute watch. ‐ Orca Sound

2/5 20% Irresistible (2005) The problem is the story and direction. Basically, the way the story is told. It plays upon stereotypes and has a twist you can see coming from a mile away. And oh, that ending.‐ Orca Sound

2.5/5 65% Clementine (2019) we just get a superficial examination of both. This does not allow you to invest yourself in the characters nor really be subsumed into the story.‐ Orca Sound
