Eye Contact (2014)

The beauty and possible danger of the night. We start to feel worried for the subject. The paranoia. The loneliness. Shifts into something more sinister... or is it? I've walked home at night behind a woman and can imagine how they must feel with a strange man behind them, seemingly dogging their foot steps. But then eye contact is made and we're back to stalking territory again. Is it infatuation? Does it matter? Then we feel a palpable sense of dread as the stalking continues. The streets are narrower, poorly lit. The pace increases and the stalking becomes a terrifying chase.

For once out of focus shaky cam works. I really enjoyed this one. Total atmospheric immersion. Well done Eli!
