Thought-provoking and intriguing without being pretentious., 21 January 2001
The film, without an A-list cast, pulls off the plot well. The characters,
although not really deep, are well structured, and the plot constructed
subtle complexity. The 1930s scenes are dramatically created. I found
myself trying to guess the plot twists, but with little success as they
unfolded. It was a good film, and richer in substance than the Matrix, and
left you with a thought provoking afterthought about our own existence.
Going into a movie, I hope to have avoided any prior information about the
plot, and this one was well worth the purchase of the video. This could
have made a great 3 hour movie to really develop the characters and the
philosophical issues, however, it was reduced down to the 100 minutes
time-span. I'd give it 8 out of 10.
