I really liked this film. Joseph-Gordon Levitt's choices in films are almost always stellar ("Stop-Loss" ruins his 'street-cred'). This film assures us that he has not lost his ability to find solid scripts and amazing directors.

The reason why this film is so interesting is because of its structure. To help make a decision, a couple flips a coin, then two stories progress simultaneously. Each story shows us the outcome of a different coin-toss result. One story is a mystery/action film and the other shows us how the two characters interact in a dysfunctional family BBQ. Beautifully shot and performed. The film masterfully uses the coin-flip device and avoids being gimmicky – kudos!
