Eddie

A gripping mystery that unfolds a tense narrative of psychological turmoil.
4/5

Review

James Tyler White’s short mystery thriller, led by the intense portrayal of Eddie by White himself, unravels a gripping narrative of a man consumed by mental anguish upon discovering his wife’s death at a motel. As Eddie grapples with his troubled thoughts, the film takes the audience on a tense journey, delving into psychological disturbance and possible deniability within his character.

Beautifully shot, the film benefits greatly from outstanding cinematography by Aaron Tucker, offering captivating lighting, framing, and production design that elevate the overall visual experience. The narrative, though gripping and fleeting, leaves the audience yearning for more investigation, as it culminates just as the suspense intensifies.

Respectable acting, especially from White, underscores the psychological depth of the story, yet Kim Sim’s character remains somewhat unexplored, leaving untapped potential for further character development. The film hints at themes of infidelity and betrayal, inviting more questions than answers and urging the audience to contemplate the intricacies of Eddie’s troubled mind.

White’s thriller serves as a tantalizing glimpse into the shadows of psychological turmoil, leaving a lingering sense of suspense and a desire for deeper exploration.
