Time Out

Aims for intricate, Hitchcockian suspense, embellished with ornate visual flourishes that recall Dario Argento's early giallo movies.

Julia's Eyes doesn't mean much more than what shows up on the surface of the screen, but it's a cinematic exercise that certainly puts a person on edge.

What a ridiculous story!!! It's an awful mess which I wish I'd avoided. Julia's Eyes are better shut down.
