All the cars in the film are dirty and covered in road mud except for the windows. They are all clean and crystal clear. See more »
Truth cannot be separate from us. It cannot exist independently of the human mind. Truth is strong and it will prevail. There's nothing wrong with that, except it isn't true. Truth is what you make it. Reality is perception.

This movie was initiallly released in Europe. In 2016. Up until then the ratings had it at 7.6
Then it gets re-released to US and worldwide as Dark Crimes. Then the ratings and reviews drop it down to under 5.
So you understand the differences of opinion here.
I liked the movie. It is slow paced yes, but it does not drag too long. I enjoyed the filmography and the direction of scene (it actually reminded me of Mr Robot) with a slight twist at the end.
All the shot/reverse-shot scenes between Jim Carrey and Marton Csokas were amazing. And Jim Carrey playing the cold detective is also very good.
I recommend it, unfortunately, others do not becuase it's not an American cop drama with lots of shooting explosions etc. If you expect that, do not see the film
