Thought provoking film.
27 March 2004 | by (Bournemouth, England) – See all my reviews

Against the ebb and flow of the film industry, Richard Burridge the writer/director/producer of Collusion has produced a film which is thought provoking for the audience, not just a spectacle to be watched and observed.

To get the most out of this film the viewer has to constantly reflect upon what we are being shown and told. As many characters of the film are deceiving and being deceived, so too is the audience. Never have I been kept on my toes so much in a film trying to work out exactly what the real story is and what is really going on. With the idea at the beginning of the film that not everything is how it seems, we immediately start to suspect everyone and anything. The fun of this film is all about the discovery of truth.

There is a scene in the film where Jack Littlemore (Aden Gillett) is organising pieces of a jigsaw puzzle to reveal the picture. This is exactly what the film is about. The audience must organises the pieces of information given to them throughout to try to reveal the bigger picture.

Of my own personal quest for the truth when I viewed the film, all I will say is that I was on the right track, but still far enough off the scent to be left amazed and bewildered by the reveal at the end of the film. The clever thing is that once you realise what has gone on in front of your eyes, it all seems so credible. Richard Burridge manages to weave a fantastical tale, but make it seem credible and make so much sense that it left me wondering how I hadn't worked it out for myself when the answers were there all along. The film is testament to Burridge's story telling skills as he manages to keep us guessing right to the end.

In conclusion, Collusion is a very engaging and entertaining film that challenges the way in which we watch films. We are left to fill in the blanks and unravel the story strands for ourselves which gives the film lasting impact long after the initial viewing.
