Good reviewer and clarifier and good comments
12 October 2008 | by (Cayman Islands) – See all my reviews

If it weren't for elissarh I would not have understood this movie, so elissa, good going. You are a good reviewer. I must admit I did miss some of the movie as I left for about 20 minutes to run out and get some dinner, but needless to say the movie still was unclear to me, and I think I was getting, and eventually at the end, got lost. The twist left me more confused. I decided to read the reviews. I would advise anyone who does not understand what happened to read the review by elissrh. Her two scenarios are workable and I think either one, but especially the first, can be exactly what happened. Thanks K-Burg as well. You also gave a good commentary. I did like Lukas Haas' acting in spite of the unclarity of the movie. He had me anxious to know what was going to happen next, so in spite of all the unclarity, I still felt that suspense, and therefore enjoyed the movie.
