A man (Stelio Savante) and a woman (Hannah Jane McMurray) find
themselves stranded in a posh hotel when a thunderstorm makes it
impossible to travel, and since they seem to be the only guests, they
decide to have a drink together at the hotel bar. They somehow seem to be
intrigued by one another, mainly because neither can read the other, which
suggests myriards of possibilities as to how the evening will progress -
which is only augmented by the report about the mysterious disappearance
of a high-rankin Pentagon official (Marston Allen) they see on the bar's
TV. And whatever the outcome of the evening is, it might (or might not) be
linked to that incident ...
Now one thing's for sure, Pronoia
is a film that's not very easy to get in just one viewing, and it seems
very much that's intentional even: Basically this is a mystery that's more
interested in the mystery itself than the solution, thus playing with
atmosphere, dialogue, even audience perception - and the concept works
beautifully, thanks to a script that's stringent even if it doesn't reveal
where it's going, poignant dialogue, interesting characters played by a
solid cast, and of course a slick yet atmospheric direction.
a cool experience!
