It's a puzzle, an enigma you need NOT to solve.
23 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

This movie was presented like a puzzle. You may want to solve it but the truth is, it has been pieced together all along.

Throughout the movie, the 6-year long relationship of Dell and Kimberly are flashed but not in a chronological manner. In fact, stages of their relationship are shown in clips that interchange the past and the present.At times, you could find yourself doubting if the events are real or were they some sort of a dream or a mere product of imagination.It may seem confusing, but it's really not. Basically, like how relationships are, the movie shows how they met, broke up, got together,etc... That's it. But what's endearing about this movie is how the story was told,how the characters were portrayed and the conversations they had.It's a masterpiece on its own.

Kudos to the director and of course, to the palpable chemistry of Justin Long and Emmy Rossum which has played a major contribution in making this film a masterpiece indeed.

Watching this movie might be confusing at first. Nonetheless, you never stop watching. That's how wonderful Comet is. It's wonderful. Truly a must-watch.
