A wickedly entertaining social thriller that you need to unearth from the depths of Prime Video
On the same day that
a new social thriller
starring one of Bollywood’s foremost actors arrives in theatres,
the under-the-radar Sundance hit Emergency, a wickedly entertaining
film also about issues that plague minorities, has landed on Amazon Prime Video.
Essentially a One Long Night movie about three friends who discover
unconscious girl in their house and attempt to get her to the hospital,
Emergency is a taut thriller that,
over 90-odd minutes, continues to surprise and shock in equal measure.
Peppered with relentlessly suspenseful set-pieces and clever use of humour,
the film ends with a close-up so powerful that you’ll feel like you’ve been knocked on the side of the head.
