| The Elevator embraced thriller almost as a challenge
The movie is very cool both from a technical and emotional perspective. From the outset the woman (Caroline Goodal) and Jackh (James Parks) are dwarfed by their surroundings. The elevator is a little, empty space and while the characters may be fighting over control of the panic room, there's a calm, detached air to the cinematography. Part of that is Coglitore's style, and part of that is his direction perfectly suiting the environment he created. The elevator was built like a puzzle that could be pulled apart and put back together with relatively low difficulty in order to get the necessary shots. To know about the amount of effort that went into making this indipendet movie is interesting, but I believe The Elevator has a lot to offer on its own merits. The technical craftsmanship is what's key to the film's success because the lift has dual functions. It's a prison and a fortress. It provides the illusion of safety. The characters are broadly drawn, but specific enough to be captivating. This is, it's just an escalating cat-and-mouse game. This is a movie of constraints and freedom. The camera can move anywhere, but the characters are trapped. That's really the standout aspect of the picture. We're in a movie where a womn and and a man are stuck in a elevator.
