Throughout the film, Jim Carrey's accent changes from Eastern European to Western European and he even forgets the accent no less than three times while speaking with an American inflection. With a total shoot of over 30 days, his re-shoots were likely several weeks apart. See more »
Enjoyed this movie and the subtle way it presented a dark story.
Watching this film I first off have to say I loved the way Jim Carrey immersed himself into his role. Some people only like him when he is playing humorous roles, but I feel that his serious rolls such as this one (and others like The Number 23) are well portrayed by him. I felt that the film had a well developed corruption murder crime story line to it. I was able to foreshadow the ending a little, but it still was a good film that I thoroughly enjoyed it. The portrayal of Tadek, by Carrey was well developed and showed human character flaws that were subtle but well intertwined into the story. I love the way that David Grann, (the writer of the original story the movie is based on) ended the story with a marginal twist like adding a twist of lime to a cocktail after you have already drank half the glass and ate the olive. This film is not for everyone, but I do recommend giving it a watch, if for nothing else other than seeing Carrey explore a roll away from humor again.
