Great thriller/suspense!

I was pleasantly surprised at how good this movie was. Not because of the actors, they are all stellar, but because I had never heard of it. It has been slim pickings lately on streaming movie because I've seen all those worth watching. Friday night boredom, I reluctantly decided to watch it. The beginning starts off a little slow but it gets better fast and the rest will leave you on the edge of your seat. Great acting, great plot! Watch it you won't be disappointed!!

Entertaining - beats watching a rerun of anything
Verified purchase
Movie is watchable, not toallyncronge worthy. Selma Blair isn't credible as a wealthy shut in. The plot seems far fetched - especially the conclusion given shut ins that are agoraphobic wouldn't have been able to manage that transition.

If you leave reality behind, it's entertaining.

Classy Thriller

Columbus Circle is a well-crafted, well-produced, spellbinding thriller that deserved to be released theatrically! Selma Blair is an underrated actress who delivers a laudable performance as reclusive heiress, who propels the movie to a role reversal ending. The ingenious climax makes this movie a "must see." This is a solid 5-star entertainment value!

I have seen the movie and read the other reviews to date. If you are looking for a review by a movie critic, skip this. This review, like all others, is based on personal taste and experience--it is very subjective.

My main interest in this movie is the subject of agoraphobia (literally a fear of open spaces), which it illustrates fairly well. Some reviewers have labeled this anthrophobia, fear of people. I dont see an distinction here. My wife suffered from this disease for many years. When the symptoms first became evident, we had no idea what the cause was and it scared the hell out of us. No one else seemed to know either which made it worse. I wish that in 1968-1973 there had been a movie like this. The disease is debilitating. It is not, as one reviewer put it, "a case of nerves." Lately some doctors have become aware of this problem and in an attempt to educate the medical professionals I can reach some doctors have been given copies of this disk.

If you suffer from this condition, are responsible for the care of someone afflicted, or a loved one has this, please watch this show. If you don't want to buy it, rent it or borrow it. The point is if people understand what the disease is they can be more help to the people involved.

As other reviewers ahave complained this movie will not keep you on the edge of your chair but it will open your mind. I believe some who have taken the time to review this show could be helped by opening their minds.

Thank you. If I can offer any assistance to the afflicted, please write me at

Great little suspense gem with great acting
Verified purchase
I love this movie. It's one of my go-to movies when I just need to unwind. Kind of a modern Hitchcock-esqe style. I love Selma Blair and all the actors, actually. Nice little plot and great delivery. I've watched it at least 10 times.
