Brilliant drama movie, clever script and direction. Haunting drama with some amazing performances. Must see movie
If you can get past the non-linear narrative, this is a decent thriller with overarching themes of grief and faith. Del Toro is phenomenal.
One of my favorite films. Amazing performances. A film that toys with narrative and not at all chronological be warned. That said-- worth it
Twisted movie with the amazing performances from the cast, especially Watts, Penn and Del Toro. The theme about death is very well depicted.
Such a post-production that was. The most complicated and the most fluent.
Penn, del Toro, and Watts are wonderful! They collide in this thriller.
Leaves you on a high but quickly leaves your memory shortly after watching it
Tbh, I watched this film way back and it was a little boring. At some point I will give it another shot, maybe I will appreciate it more.
Good story and execution. Great acting performances by all 3 leads. Relied on chance a little too often, but still a very good watch.
