影評:

●「觀眾被情節吸引,等待下一次神秘接觸,快速剪接和邦戈鼓營造氣氛,有點像60年代間諜片常見的手法,但很有意思……《危險人生指南》顯示蓋瑞提是一位值得關注的導演。」琳達巴納德,多倫多星報

●「一部由角色和情感驅動的驚悚片,」銀幕日報

●「 關於賦權的精彩詮釋」史考特格雷,Exclaim!

《危險人生指南》是一部微妙而氣氛十足的電影,以蜜雪兒吉魯(也是劇場女演員)的核心表演為基礎。

 

 

 

Synopsis 

Nicole, 41, is a pharmacist with a husband and two teenage kids, who is at a point in her life when she is asking if ‘this is it,’ or whether there’s something more.

One day she gets a letter from an anonymous observer who knows her daily habits, and her potential, intimately. He has a plan for her if she is interested. The letter contains a green card that she should place in her window, if she wishes to pursue the mysterious relationship. If not, she should throw the letter away, and she will never hear from the observer again.

After a few days of internal debate, she puts the card in the window and begins a long relationship with the elusive observer, who puts her on a program that starts by changing her life, but ultimately threatens everything that has meaning for her.

Reviews:

“The audience is pulled in, waiting for the next contact, urged on with quick cuts and staccato bongos – a little ’60s spy-flick cliché, but fun…  Blood Pressure shows that Garrity is a director to watch.” Linda Barnard, Toronto Star

“A thriller driven by characters and human emotions, as opposed to mindless action” Screen International

“A triumphant double-edged examination of empowerment” Scott A. Gray, Exclaim!

Blood Pressure is a subtle and atmospheric film, grounded by the central performance of Michelle Giroux (primarily a stage actress)
