So ‘Open Windows’ stars Sasha Grey and Elijah Wood in a movie about a neglected fan (Elijah Wood) who soon finds himself caught up in a deadly cat-and-mouse game after he accepts an opportunity from some random guy with a bad accent to spy on his favorite actress (Sasha Grey) on his laptop.
Netflix seems to always have a way of sucking me into the really bad movies and this was just another bad/confusing movie that never should’ve been made.
Elijah Wood was awkward and weird and Sasha Grey’s attempts at acting were just that, attempts. Maybe I am giving her such a hard time because of her prior film work, maybe I should watch more of her movies but no, her acting wasn’t the best.
I’m sure the script wasn’t the best, the plot was ok, and I couldn’t wait for the movie to end.
The whole movie was just too confusing, there were parts where I thought I finally understood what was happening until something else happened and then I was confused all over again.
The most comical part of the whole movie was a scene where Elijah Wood instructs Sasha Grey via computer to be seductive as she’s being held captive by the guy instructing Elijah Wood via computer on what to tell Sasha Grey, she was wearing a robe with nothing else on underneath, she exposes her breast and nothing more, I am pretty sure the writers did not want to show her completely naked, they didn’t want viewers to think they were watching another Sasha Grey Porn.
Overall watch at your own risk.
