I love independent, fun little dramas that give you a sense of not knowing where they are heading. Sleight does that, and well. There are some scientific and medical non-possibilities which weaken the final third of this brief film, but I love the whole street performer-with-multiple irons in the fire-angle. 7/10

UPDATE: I caught some the beginning parts of Nerve on TV, and was reminded of what a fun and fresh film it is, at least through the first half. So an upgrade: 7/10. Just don’t expect it to hold up all the way to the end.
