Wow....
17 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

I just watched this for the first time and have to say it is easily one of the best thrillers I have seen in a long time....I would rate this on par with the likes of Silence of the Lambs and just about any Hitchcock thriller, including Psycho.

The acting was sublime, the characters were very developed and it was almost no effort to care for what is happening.

I honestly cannot think of a film that has been that much of a Joy to watch since the first time I saw The Usual Suspects.

This is going to be added to my personal list of all time favorite thrillers.

10/10
