Movie Review: The Loft

the loftWhen five guys come together and buy a loft with the idea of avoiding credit card statements from hotels as they run their clandestine activities it seems like a really great idea – both practically and financially – you can never go wrong with real estate.

The loft is a fast paced thriller that will keep you glued to the screen, guessing and on the edge of your seat. It revolves around the lives of five guys who came together to buy an upmarket 9th floor loft. They didn’t plan on renting it out and raking in on the high demand for property in that side of town, no, they used the loft to have affairs.

The plan, on paper, made perfect sense. Everything worked out perfect, they had rules which they followed to the letter until one fateful day one of them walks in and finds a dead – or seemingly dead – body on the bed.

Here is where the plot thickens and the whole movie unravels before your very eyes. Everyone seems suspect and you can’t help yourself with wild speculations at who the killer is, or even why. At this point the writer reveals secrets between the five friends, secrets that will change the way you look at them. Secrets shrouded in so much darkness but shedding light all the same.

In the end, even if your name was Oliver, you do not expect the twist that the writer sneaks in. It’s simply beautiful and nerve wrecking. It’s not such a recent release, it came out in 2014, but this shouldn’t stop you from watching. Get yourself a quiet room, some popcorn and socks ready to be blown off.
