The outside of the inside by candlelight or, the mice into the snake, as it were. The film takes an average viewer and turns them into a voyeur of the nearly, though not quite, expected. The beauty of partial understanding serves as its currency, though we should not get too preoccupied by the transactions between scenes or characterizations to the demise of entertaining an all-too-rare claustrophobic every night that unfurls in time lapse and predatory recoil. That is the texture of Tunnels - not a surface at all, but a flickering window to the jerky,
dark terror of movement and sound through which we are allowed passage. By the final scene I had been freed of a concern over what any of it meant, for once.
