Sexy, subtle -- if Collusion has one fault, it's that it may be too smart for its own good. In a world that has grown used to paper-thin characters and contrived
plots, a film that respects the intelligence of its viewers will be a breath of fresh air for some, but too much of a challenge for others. This film demands active engagement right from the first frame. There are no obvious clues interjected to help the less perceptive unravel its labyrinthine plot, only a cast of smooth operators well versed in subterfuge, and an understated tone that does nothing to hide the mounting tension as one struggles to figure out exactly who is
manipulating whom. The end is a revelation, as viewers find that they have
been beguiled just as thoroughly as the scheme's victim. Collusion is visually lush, and filled with quietly brilliant performances. For those who prefer films with meat on their bones, Collusion will prove a very satisfying experience.
