Storyline

This psychological thriller is true to its subjects as well as being complex, dynamic, and overly dramatic. How something so long ago, seemingly trivial, years later with more significant trauma, turns repressed emotions into a dysfunctional life and distorted thinking. This is all merged into a psychological menagerie that unfolds piece by piece to perfection. Written by benignjamin

simply the best
23 July 2000 | by See all my reviews

Exotica is an absolutely phenomenal movie. Though I have seen it many times certain scenes still leave me amazed. IMHO it is Egoyan's personal best and one of the best films of the 90s
