Verdict on Out of This World
Out of This World is a thriller that is filled with reflective emptiness. This is seen in the quiet life that Leo lives, one where he keeps himself away from the world. He is a big dreamer and finds himself caught up in the middle of something he can’t control as he meets someone, he would like to help him change his life.
In what is a very disturbing movie that relies on the empty environment and emotions being shown by Leo. We get to see how things might unfold if he can’t control his urges. It becomes uncomfortable but works at creating a world where we don’t know what will happen next. This is helped by the brilliant performance of Kevin Mischel.
