| Politics 1on1
Not really, but I really couldn't begin to tell you what the movie is about. Well it is about politics and it seems to be quite straightforward most of the time (with a fantastic lead performance, that should earn the actor recognition), but there is more to than meets the eye. Even when things meet the eye (the eccentric, weird and completely strange intro to the movie), you're not sure if there is more to it than just that.

The inciting incident, where we only see the aftermath, will have its mirror scene, that will at least startle you. The other reviewer said it too, the impact of that scene is more than just powerful. It freezes you in a very strange way. I can't put my finger on it, but this movie is something that you should watch, if you like dramas and looking behind curtains. You might see things in there, that I didn't notice.
