I waited for ages to see this and no I did not 'illegally' download the movie - only those making less than $15,000 a year do that (and unfortunately they may only make that for the rest of their lives). Besides I LOVE seeing it on a big screen.
Despite my constant dislike to Shannen Fields in 'Facing the Giants', I was unable to disapprove of her acting in this film. She has improved massively since 'Facing'.
The film itself has an intriguing plot line which keeps you hooked throughout. The film includes humour at the start and fascination by the end. I loved watching this film and I enjoyed the smartness of the story. The film is cleverly done with jumps in time and different perspectives of events throughout which will leave you understanding the motives of each character more. The music is composed beautifully, the orchestral tunes accompanied with the clatter that a typewriter makes creates a beautiful piece of music that fits perfectly with the film itself.
'Suing the Devil' is structurally comparable to a three-act play, with a brief epilogue.
I admired "Suing the Devil" for how it looked and the ideas it had to express, but I think it's an uneven film that doesn't entirely work.
