Perfection

This movie is complete perfection.

The film filmed backwards.

It is edited together with a stroke of genius - So that the audience only knows as much as the main character who has a memory problem and cannot create short-term memories.

Guy Pearce puts in a memorable performance of Lennie. This film is a puzzle, and as it slowly comes together you come to understand each characters motivations for seemingly manipulating or befriending Lennie.

As everything comes together for an exhilirating finale, a shocking truth is revealed. The human psyche is under the microscope, how we manipulate - why we act certain ways - this film is a once in a generation film and should be on everybody's bucket list.

10/10 - 5 Stars
