Great psychological thriller. Absolutely amazing dedication from Bale to his role, as always.
A stand-out performance from Bale before moving on to Nolan’s Batman. An agonizing, tense plot that pushes it’s viewers to the limit.
Classic thriller with a great but possibly foreseeable twist.
IMO, a brilliant study of psychopathology. Bale is subtle/intense. Less is more film. Not for the impatient or CGI freaks. Great direction.
This movie made me sad but the actos acted out of their minds and the story telling was really good. It was just a mood I wasn't ready for.
The constant edge, paranoia and plot twist made this movie go from a 5 to 10. Great movie.
Riddled with Kafkaesque sequences and paranoia. Shades of Memento. I rate it 6/10 and label it as a mystery.
Such a suspense. I thought I had it figured out but was taken on a ride of surprise instead. Christian Bale played this role with excellence
Very slow paced, but it's Christian Bale
Christian Bale is phenomenal. A heartbreaking story that slow burns to a shocking conclusion. See this without any knowledge if possible.
