  2. I really like the look of this one.

    Gyllenhaal surprised me in "Prisoners" and he showed what a fine actor he is.
  3. I watched this last night. It started with so much promise which is a shame because the last scene alone ruined the whole film
  4. I was so disappointed in this film. I enjoyed the trailers and what I'd read about it and the last few films starring Jake Gyllenhaal had been really good.

    I think the ending destroyed anything good I could have taken from this film :(
  5. Watched this last night with a group of friends, with very mixed reactions. One of them said it was the worst film he had seen this year.

    I really liked it. Thought it had a an effective sense of tension and dread. The lack of dialog helped this immensely and was just enough to keep the whole film, which is short by today's standards, moving along.

    Jake Gyllenhaal was superb in it. His portrayal of two very similar men was deftly done, especially the lecturer character who really looked like he was losing the plot entirely.

    Still on the fence about the way it looks though, brown, brown and more brown. I enjoyed the architectural shots of Montreal but the colouring was a little too much I think. The score on the other hand was good and weird.

    Speaking of weird, this had some really surreal dream sequences. In particular the scene in the hotel lobby was quite unsettling due to the sinister music and the almost ritualistic check in.

    I think you can take multiple meanings from this movie, and there seems to be several trains of thought on what actually happens in it. Definitely worth a rewatch
  6. I liked it. There was a very Scandinavian feel to the whole thing, and the ending was interesting.
