Control was written by James Mark and Matthew Nayman and stars Sara Mitich and George Tchortov.
The film follows a young woman who awakens to find herself trapped in a mysterious facility. A faceless voice then begins testing her.
Mitich is best known for her roles on Star Trek: Discovery where she played both Lt. Nilsson and Airiam. Tchortov appeared in Mark’s Sci-Fi 2019 feature Enhanced, and recently recurred in Mayor of Kingstown.
I received a copy of the film in exchange for a fair review.
Doing More With Less
The single room setting which this film spends the majority of its time is amazing when it comes off. Control does a good job of keeping things interesting while we’re stuck in a tiny room. A woman who has no memory except little snippets of a memory. They serve as an intermission of sorts as the story unfolds it lets the audience put more and more things together and start drawing their own conclusions.
It is very easy to get sucked in to the individual tests even though we know the major reveal if you read the synopsis summary on IMDB. The film subtly leads you to some questions about what exactly is going on here and where it can end.
It is difficult to say more about the ride this film takes you on without giving too much away. If you want to take a deeper dive into Control we have something special for you. We got the chance to sit down with the director of Control to talk about his creative process and his previous projects.
