An average movie

I have noticed that some viewers believe that this feature is one of the most underrated movies ever made. Well, it is definitely an intriguing movie with 2 great actors at the top of their game, I’ll give you that, but I still don’t believe it is actually a great movie. I mean, the concept was really interesting but I really didn’t dig the way they handled this material. Indeed, I think psychology is really fascinating but you don’t have many movies that really  deal well with this subject and this movie was one of those, I’m afraid. Basically, you have here a deeply deranged man played by Kevin Spacey and, in this movie, instead of exploring his wounded psyche, they go for the option ‘what if what he said might be true?’ which was just a really underwhelming angle. Indeed, because of this approach, the whole psychological aspect, in fact the biggest asset in this flick, was just greatly undermined and what you get instead is some melodramatic fantasy. Basically, the whole theory developed in this movie is that mentally ill patients might actually be telling the truth after all which might be neat for some viewers but I thought it was just ludicrous and not really compelling. To conclude, even though I didn’t really care for this movie, I have to admit that it was rather well done and the actors involved were really good so it is still worth a look, in spite of some massive flaws.
