A film smarter than most people
2 August 2020 | by setbroSee all my reviews

If you're the type of person who needs movies totally spelled out for you, you are not going to like or understand this movie, go watch Avengers or something. It's a very psychological film and characters are playing a psychological game with each other and they don't exactly tell you what it is you have to take the clues. Even though what's going on is clearly right there they're not going to tell you what it is. That's all I can say without giving away too much.
