At about 49 minutes in, in a scene at the police station, a sticker on a file cabinet reads "COUNTRY; 98.8 KSRS". FM stations in the US only advance in odd 10ths (such as 98.1, 98.3, etc). Also, KSRS is a radio station in Roseburg, Oregon...not exactly New York City. See more »

An excellent thriller. I took a very nice surprise with it
I was not very interested in watching WAZ, because the plot summary sounded as another poor rehash of Seven and Saw.However, I took a huge surprise with this film.WAZ ended up being an excellent thriller, and although it shares a few elements with them, I think it is a big mistake to say it is a rehash of Seven and Saw.
The screenplay from WAZ is truly brilliant.Recent "torture-porn" films (like The Strangers, Saw V or Captivity) bored me very much, because they do not endorse the torture scenes with a solid screenplay.Fortunately, WAZ endorses its brutal violence with interesting characters and a very intelligent story which reflects about some fascinating topics.And, because of that narrative complexity, the torture scenes have a much bigger emotional impact than almost all the others "torture-porn" thrillers.Besides, this movie has an ingenious twist at the end which does not leave any plot holes and closes the story perfectly.
Stellan Skarsgård and Melissa George bring great performances.They both show a good level of intensity, and they are very involved on their characters, so they result very credible.Pity these two perfect performances went completely unnoticed.
I really did not expect to like this movie so much.WAZ is an excellent (not to mention very underrated) thriller which deserves an enthusiastic recommendation, with the warning that the scenes of violence may result too intense for some people.I took a huge surprise with this film.
