Freeze Frame: Film #38 of Film 365

Thursday 26th May 2011

Director: John Simpson
Year: 2004
Stars: Lee Evans, Sean McGinley, Ian McNeice, Rachael Stirling, Colin Salmon

It was mostly just curiosity that made me watch this. I knew almost nothing about it, but the review in the TV guide made it sound intriguing.

Freeze Frame is a British film starring Lee Evans. Evans plays Sean Veil, a man who was accused of murder 10 years ago. He wasn't convicted, but since then he's been rather paranoid and records his every movement to prove what he's been doing.

The film is very dark, and feels like a horror film. It's not - it's very much a murder mystery - but the dark, grainy style really does add to the feel of what you're watching. The plot isn't overly complex, but having said that, I couldn't guess who had done what and had to wait to be told. Freeze Frame is certainly not the best movie I've seen recently, but it is still a pretty solid film and worth a watch.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5

About Me

My photo
I live in Bristol with my husband Dan (who I married in July 2007), my son Joe (born 2012) and daughter Jess (born 2015). I work at UWE (the University of the West of England) in Bristol as a Research and Open Access Librarian. I'm orginally from Exeter, so moving back to Bristol is a bit like coming home - especially as I studied for my undergraduate degree here (also at UWE). I love travelling and movies, although I get to do a lot less of both since the birth of our children. Although we have still managed to fit in holidays to the Isles of Scilly, Chamonix and a summer in California since Joe was born.
