This film had so much energy for a black and white film, it was definitely not what I expected in the best way possible. I love the way that the majority of the film is told through the flashback of a suspected lunatic, and how uncanny situations used in combination with lack of information are used to create drama and suspense in the film. The tone of the film changes and escalates, beginning with confusion and concern about the mysterious incedent, then stretching to paranoia and uncertainty, as the plot thickens the situation just becomes fearful and urgent. The best part about this continuum of emotion is that its change is driven mainly by dialouge and nothing too extraordinary happens until midway through the film when the first pod is found. My favorite scenes were the last end sequence which included the chase, the highway, and the return to the police precinct. I enjoyed the psychological aspect of not knowing wether or not to believe Dr. Miles, and then once his story is verified, instead of continuing to tackle the next issue of the movie, the film just ends leaving you to draw your own conclusion to what happens.
