Sheer Brilliance
19 March 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Well, i firstly saw that this film was rated a meer 4.5 out of ten. However, after reading a superb review by ScottyDawg.. i took my chances and thought what the hell.. I Crap you not, this was proberbly the best film i have watched in a long long time. For unknown actors to myself, i thought it was constructed amazingly. The dialog, oh my the dialog - this is the best linguistic script for a psychology geek such as myself - I have ever seen/heard.. i can totally understand the reluctance toward this film.. but under the surface, the dialog sets you through the motions flawlessly. This is a must see for any psychology enthusiasts, or any one with a contemporary mindset.. i appreciate this is not to everyones taste.. but the underlying concept and dictation this movie represents is phenomenal. I have literally signed up to "Big up" this flick.. as i feel a poor rating can sway the potential audience.. I thank ScottyDawg for the review, as i would not have bothered otherwise.. All i can say is, Forget Shutter island, forget butterfly effect.. even forget momento.. and take a wild chance at one of the best cinematic pieces to date.
