If you’re into action movies, or expect Robin Williams to be in any way funny, then please give this one a miss. If however you like serious movies and aren’t ignorant/homophobic, this is a thriller well worth watching in the dark.

For most of the movie, I was completely captivated. The perfomances awere really good, especially Robin Williams who gives one of his best perfomances Unfortunately, the story just didn't really work and, I personally think that the twist didn't work out at.. It's too bad because it really had some potential. Still definitely worth a lok though.

"02.05.2015 Robin Williams kuulee asioita yöradio-ohjelmassaan. Tästä alkaa todella sekava elokuva, jossa on jotain pedari/skitsofrenia-juttuja, jotka ovat muuten aika perseestä. Kaiken lisäksi tämä näytti tv-elokuvalta."

From Best to Worst: Robin Williams (76 movies items)

"This psychological thriller compels by blurring the line between truth and fiction; unfortunately, the film itself gets muddled in a hazy account of Maupin's original novel."

Miika's Movie Diary - 2012 (311 movies items)

"11.2, TV Rautalangasta synkkyyttä hakeva trilleri, jossa joku pedofiilien ahdistelemaksi joutunut pikkupoika ottaa Robin Williamsiin yhteyttä. Mielenkiinto häviää heti ensi metreillä ja palaa siinä about 20 minuuttia ennen elokuvan loppua."
