This shape-shifting tale of the perils and pleasures of self-reinvention begins at a dinner party, when Tom's (Michael Shannon) co-worker arrives with an intriguing date named Alice (Rachel Weisz). Tom is convinced he knows her, but she refuses to acknowledge their history. And when Alice makes a hasty exit, Tom sets off after her. What follows is an all-night odyssey shared by two people, one needing to change his life, the other questioning how to stop changing. Written by
I read the plot for "Complete Unknown" and thought it sounded interested. After getting the movie, I put it on and its like watching paint dry. What is even going on in the movie? Is this just a very "subtle" drama? I am confused how this movie got 6 stars. I hate to bash your movie, especially if this is from a young director but what delight could a man get out of watching this, bland a** dialogue. Hold up. Maybe I'm trippin. Maybe this movie is a masterpiece and I just don't have the patience to see how it all turns out in the end. Maybe I turned it off right before the story started building? Maybe I should have smoked a blunt and then it would have made more sense? What tf is this dawg?
