20 October 2007 | by FlippanTadpoleSee all my reviews

This is a very special movie - a must see for sure! This is one of the best movies I have seen so far in terms of plot, character interaction, twists, schemes, and even location. The plot is impressively and deliciously elaborate, which I love in movies and books. It's a movie you can watch over and over and each time you would pick up something you missed the previous times. Pay very close attention to every second, though - cause you will miss out on things and get a little confused. In the end, though, everything ties together so nicely and you totally get it. I loved the way it was filmed too - scenes like where a kid was smoking and they zoomed in on the cig, then the next scene you see a cig, they zoom out and it's someone else. I love that transitional stuff. The movie has a nice midwestern feel, which I am akin to. The actors and actresses did a great job - believable and personable.
