Shocking, gripping, twisting, turning work of genius, 17 Feb. 2005
This film is a masterpiece. The viewer is wrenched from the seat and immersed in the beautiful, but agonisingly painful world of the hero as he seeks reason for the robbery of his life.
Constantly suprising, it is a funny, intelligent consideration of revenge, guilt and love. The acting, direction, technique, cinematography, and score are all masterful.
True, the implied violence is not for the faint of heart, but it neither dominates nor detracts, rather lending an unbelievable power to the ultimate denoument. That is despite having the greatest (and truest) fight scene ever filmed in a corridor.
If you want drama, passion and redemption, you have to see this film. Buy it, love it, then make your friends watch it as well.
