@08:48That was marvelous. The suspense, the thrill, the story, the drama. Good for me I'm used to watching two images at a time, because that's kinna the way i see with my slightly crossed/astigmatism.
I really really loved it :D

@09:38SPOILERS:
For anyone who is confused, if you want to know what's going on:



I think what's happening is that both eyes are on two separate timelines. The right eye starts when the girl enters the house in the left eye. Then the right eye shows the woman traveling around the house until she waits in the corner to assault the villain, whom she has discovered is a serial killer. Thus, the left eye is the backstory to the right eye, explaining how she got to the house. The reason why the two images merge is because the two characters are standing in the same spot at different times. At that point, the left eye shuts off and we are left with the conclusion.

@00:06absolutely beautiful, engaging and an amazing story.

I love how when the film first starts, you think the other guy on the train was going to be the main character, but then it ends up being the girl.

so stylistic and incredible all-around. amazing job.
