Trivia

The original draft of the screenplay was written in 2009, years before leaked NSA information detailing cyber-espionage was revealed--a topic discussed directly in the film. See more »

Goofs

Characters repeatedly refer to events occurring later in the movie as if they have already happened, which causes certain events to not happen. This, in turn, causes them not to mention the events in the preceding dialogue. See more »

Best dialog I have experienced in years
27 December 2013 | by karmabandrocksSee all my reviews

I believe it is a travesty that this film has such a low score on here. The only thing I can attribute it to is that today's viewers have an attention span of a raccoon trapped in a treasure chest. I suppose the fact that I am a very big fan of this type of film--and what I mean by that is chock full intelligent dialog--may also have something to do with that. There are two other films that have always been in my top 10 favorite films list because of this attribute and they are 12 Angry Men, and The Man From Earth (not to be confused with the man who fell to earth.) Basically a few people trapped in a room for most of the movie discussing a monumental mathematical proof that has huge implications for just about everything and everyone on the planet, and the moral responsibility they have as they are in cahoots with the government through funding. If you have an attention span, love existential and philosophical discussions, or just enjoy movies that make you think then you will love this film as I did. Please help this film get the rating it deserves.
