140 words: Exam


8 ambitious job candidates are tasked with completing an entry exam. The only rules are the rules of the invigilator. Will a candidate be selected for the job?

Exam is a British, smart, culturally-relevant thriller about the medicine industry. It’s not scared to stay ambiguous and doesn’t patronise the audience, and there is little if any exposition; the movie just exists and you are supposed to accept their world.

The dialogue was a bit forced occasionally, however there was a good ramping of tension, which worked in tandem with the character motivation being bled slowly to us.

The cinematographer managed to make a movie about an exam in one room exciting, and it dealt with questions and what people do in a desperate pursuit for answers. The reveal at the end worked really well and I recommend Exam to everyone!
