Cheers guys. Personally I don't see how


Let's hope the director's commentary will solve it once and for all for definite!

Hey it may well be better letting us think what we want rather than letting it all out of the bad from the Director some films you can imagine what you want and still enjoy them.

Mind you over explaining things like Donnie Darko gets a bit odd as when the director explained that, the film went mental and off the scale of silly alternate realaties and multi dimentional charecters forcing their way into other relms to save people.

Mind you he does also say whatever you think works also

I thought it was a rip off of Time Crimes, anyone else here seen that? Obviously you could say its a 'homage', I thought timecrimes was better though.

From what I read the script for Triangle was around many years before Timecrimes was even a thought so I doubt it was a blatant copy.

Yeah have now read up on it and the director said he had the story 4 years before (Timecrimes came out a year ago) at frightfest or some festival where his was the big film this year and timecrimes the year before.

Was it the hot pants that made this awesome or the story?

Watched this this afternoon and it's a cracking little movie. Keeps you guessing until the end with plenty to think about, and George is excellent. Well worth watching - 7.5/10.

It's one of those films (like Usual Suspects / Fight Club) which would really benefit from a second viewing.

Great top and shorts combo also!


Doest that make sense? Need to see it again. Will wait for the bluray now, as I think it'll look great. I loved the sets.

I didn't think it was that great to be honest, although after reading this thread, I may revisit it at some point in the future. I felt a bit empty and cheated after it ended, although certain relevations were interesting. Melissa looks great though.

Think its a great little film.

Will defiantly be picking it up when it goes down in price, will be in the 2 for 25 or something soon at HMV i'd imagine.

Am hoping for an interesting commentary.

ditto, i though this film was also one of the best.

also better, by the fact i didn't now what was going to happen, unlike most "blockbusters" these days (ie. spoilt by trailers, reviews etc)

I rented this a few weeks ago and rather enjoyed.

One thing annoyed me a little though, after I'd watched the (very good) "Making of". They built a large section of the ship on a long, thin strip of land which sticks out into the sea for extra verismilitude.

However, what's the point if you then plaster so much CGI over the top of it in post production that it doesn't look as though you've stepped outside a soundstage?!

Watched this tonight and rather enjoyed it. Christopher Smith is becoming a more accomplished director with every film he makes. I found Creep rather ropey, Severance was an improvement but this was very well made.

The similarities to Trimecrimes are pretty odd, though like others I believe that this is a coincidence as in the end it's about something else entirely. I much preferred this to Timecrimes, which got rather tiresome after the time machine is revealed. This film keeps you guessing till the end.

The other film apart from Timecrimes this reminded my of is The Machinist

Nice explanation there Todd. That certainly makes sense.

My partner and I just watched it now, and I was really enjoying it up until the last 10 minutes or so up until the point where


I thought it just got way too confusing after that. A point my girlfriend so eloquently put was,


I tend to side with her. There's no sense of closure like there was with
, which this film also reminded me of.

All the stuff on the boat was very clever though - really enjoyed it.

Read some of the earlier spoilers people have posted. Once you think about it you'll see it's fairly obvious what it's getting at and there's a pretty definite sense of closure.

Just watched this. Bluray looks fantastic, although on the downside it does show up quite a bit of dodgy CGI.

Melissa is fantastic - I almost want to watch season 4 of Alias again now.

I thought the first 30 mins was slow and it wasn't really grabbing me, but now - knowing what happens, think I will need to re-watch.

Cracking little thriller though.
