I highly recommend anyone who hasn't seen this movie to see it straightaway. This was my third time seeing it, but the first time I truly could appreciate it. The first viewing I was too young, the second time I was too stoned, and this third time I was sober and clear minded and it was perfect.

Definitely a favorite of mine now -
Very deep, very good, + a little disturbed. I... read more

To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should probably re-watch it at some point. In fact, I remember it quite well, back then, one of my best friends at the time told me he saw this amazing mindf*ck and advised me to watch it at soon as possible. Eventually, I think it still missed something to become really remarkable, maybe it was due to the fact that I’m not a h... read more

A good movie

“To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should probably re-watch it at some point. In fact, I remember it quite well, back then, one of my best friends at the time told me he saw this amazing mindf*ck and advised me to watch it at soon as possible. Eventually, I think it still missed something to become really remarkable, maybe it was due to the fact that I’m not a huge fan of such twist endings.  Still, it was quite a wild and entertaining thriller, no doubt about it.
