And it's also a mystery how we watch movies or what we expect of them. You may watch something and think it's the best thing ever, just to find out you're more or less alone with that sentiment. But that's why arguing or even discussing movies can be so much fun and is intriguing to say the least.
Take this movie, which is not the best thriller ever made, but is more than rock solid. I really liked it and it has to do with the acting, the mood it builds up, the tension throughout and how it makes sense altogether. That doesn't mean that everyone enjoys it or will enjoy watching it. Especially if you can't wrap your head around what is happening - or how it is happening. Some won't like how it turns out (no pun intended), but it was fitting in my book. It's something more for the mind rather than something that just relies on shock values (though it has more than its fair amount of that too)
