TIFF review: Rabia
Charged with alternating currents of clammy suspense and implacable tragedy, Rabia sustains interest as an understated chamber drama that always seems just one violent outburst away from something truly terrifying. Ecuadoran filmmaker Sebastian Cordero (Cronicas) enhances the overall mood of claustrophobic and voyeuristic dread with perfect-pitch performances by his first-rate players and cinematographer Enrique Chediak's atmospheric Steadicam visuals.
