I have recently seen a screening of this movie. I found it to be engrossing and labyrinthine as any Egoyan film. Yet he has taken a big budget form and made it his own. The story uses big star actors to give the feel of Hollywood. Egoyan doesn't use the time periods (50's & 70's) of the film as camp. Which most film makers do. He never takes the easy, read that as lazy, path. This film demands that Egoyan stand up to the style and quality found in Hollywood film and yet he continues to make the his. He gets amazing complex performances of everyone. People will be talking about Kevin Bacon role as Lanny Morris for months. If he doesn't get an Academy Award nomination than I will be shocked. This is the role Alison Lohman has been waiting for. Finally she gets to play an adult. He character is is naive and jaded, moored in reality and adrift in an world she can't control. Colin Firth plays Vince Collins with vulnerability and sense of control that only makes feel deeply for Vince. I have to admit this film makes me wonder why I bother to go to most films these days.
