The Night Clerk (2020, dir. Michael Cristofer)

A hotel night clerk – who has an ASD – witnesses a murder via the recordings he makes of guests. Good performances aside, this is neither trashy enough to revel in its mashup of Rear Window and the likes of Vacancy, nor pacy and committed enough to its thriller elements to work in dramatic terms. Well-directed though, and not without its pleasures.
