Quotes

Lucas Martino: You think panic has something to do with the heart racing, the nerves getting tense, the breath getting labored? Mine doesn't. But I'm in a constant state of panic, Mr. Rogers. My mind is poised for flight. I'm on the edge of screaming all the time, except that if I did more people would stare at me and that would make me scream more until I wouldn't be able to stop!

No one seems to get it...
12 July 2010 | by See all my reviews

This interesting and underrated movie is not a spy story (well, in some ways it is, but only marginally) nor is it a sci-fi flick or a movie about a robot. What we have here is actually a rather deep philosophical piece on the ultimate unknowability and unprovability of subjective reality. Not that I necessarily agree, but that is the point of the plot.

Even though we eventually learn the truth, we only do so through flashbacks showing us what really happened. But, within the movie's universe, the questioners simply have no way to reach an objective truth. As one of the detectives says - more or less - "if every fact has two explanations, we're never going to work this out". And that is exactly the point...
