Followed (2015)

After receiving a musical fellowship in Los Angeles, Chicagoans, Rachel (Stefanie Butler) and David (Adam LeClair) pack up their things and set out to start a new life together in The Golden State.  To commemorate the adventure, David documents their every move including his secret plot to propose to Rachel along the way. Toasting their friends and securing the last of their belongings the couples sets off, but not before David unknowingly captures potentially incriminating evidence while shooting a few final shots of their beloved neighborhood.  A few shots that change the course of their lives forever as they become the prey of an unstable stalker desperate to recover what they don’t even know they possess. The celebratory trip quickly turns sinister when David and Rachel begin to suspect that they are being followed.  Unsure of who or what might be after them, the road trip turns into a psychological game of cat and mouse as the couple races across the iconic plains of the American West to uncertain safety.

    I was initially going to give this one a pass, but since it popped up for rent on Vimeo I gave it a shot. I was pleasantly surprised. Solid acting, likeable characters, reasonably creepy, and an ending that I didn’t see coming at all. I enjoyed this one a lot. The main complaint I have is that the video quality on Vimeo was pretty terrible—low res and loaded with compression artifacts to the point where it was very distracting, which is especially disappointing for this movie because it looks like they actually took the road trip from Chicago while filming and a lot of the cinematography would have probably looked pretty sweet at a higher bitrate.

    **SPOILER WARNING** DON’T READ FURTHER IF YOU DIDN’T WATCH IT ALREADY!

    The one plot point that didn’t fit for me was in the restaurant—why would the limping guy approach Rachel to give her the camera? He has absolutely no reason to do that and every reason not to—what if she had recognized him? It makes zero sense that he would risk exposing himself to her like that. Likewise, to a lesser degree, some of his later appearances, but that one was the big non-sequitor for me.

    • We didn’t specifically call out those plot points in the podcast or written review, but I wholly agree with your assessment. However, the film wouldn’t exist without those scenes (i.e. no camera, no found footage!), but that begs the question as to why he had access to the camera to start with. Given the strength of the plot and acting, I gave these items a pass.

      I’ll speak to the director about the film quality and see if we can get a higher resolution version.
