This shape-shifting tale of the perils and pleasures of self-reinvention begins at a dinner party, when Tom's (Michael Shannon) co-worker arrives with an intriguing date named Alice (Rachel Weisz). Tom is convinced he knows her, but she refuses to acknowledge their history. And when Alice makes a hasty exit, Tom sets off after her. What follows is an all-night odyssey shared by two people, one needing to change his life, the other questioning how to stop changing.Written by
Don't read the reviews of either of these two movies.
Just last week I noticed how much I was missing seeing some decent films, and then I wander into two this week.
The first was Certain Women.
Not that you should never read reviews, I don't mean that. But some films, like these two, are better to experience blind, at least the first time.
If you glance at the reviews you'll notice that some people like them a lot and some were just perplexed at how anybody could like them at all. But other than the fact that I gave it 9 stars so you know I'm writing this because I think highly of Conplete Unknown, you don't want to know what I know now that I didn't know before, because if you just trust yourself and the discretion of the fine actors who took these roles, then you might get lucky and discover something yourself. Cheers!
