amazing
24 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this movie is blissful confusion, the acting on Ewan and Ryan's part was amazing, wish we had seen more of Naomi though.. too bad, this movie is full of twist and turns, if anyone has seen "a spiders web", its a little like that, and a touch like Donnie Darko, minus the crazed demon bunny, a truly beautifully shot film,the director, and director of photography,should both be given an awarded for the way it was shot, any one who can appreciate art can appreciate this movie, between the flow shot's, and the fades, it was amazing, and i was in awe, i fully recommend it of you haven't seen it, its worth the price of admission, and will loose a great deal of it's affect on a small screen, or regular TV, again i urge you to go see it while it's still in theaters
