I watched Before I Go to Sleep for Critic’s Notebook, a film full of slightly Off moments (one supposedly British character says he’s equipped a camera with the biggest memory chip I could find,” a sure sign that he’s emerged from a pod) but doesn’t get around to building an Off world to account for them. It also features Nicole Kidman getting punched in the head and kicked in the stomach more fiercely than strictly required for the point at hand, but that’s just more generally Off.
