Delusion : offbeat, mesmerizing, brilliant!
26 May 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This is a movie that has real class. It's a haunting, offbeat thriller, a psychological character study, a sophisticated, modern film noir.

The story centers on three main characters, each acted to perfection by Jim Metzler, Jennifer Rubin, and Kyle Secor. The timing and dialogue are exquisite, and the plot is believable and eerily realistic. The viewer is mesmerized as the story unfolds against the hauntingly beautiful backdrop of Death Valley. Even the minor characters add to the sinister but fascinating atmosphere that is maintained from start to end.

This is a movie that is so absorbing, so extraordinary in every way, that it actually can be habit-forming. It gets better with every viewing. In my opinion, this may be the best movie ever produced.
