An unpredictable psychological thriller that perpetually takes you deeper and deeper. If you liked 'Oldboy', you'll love this!
I don't want to spoil anything about this well-written movie so I'll be as indistinct as possible in this review.
I was lucky enough to find this gem when I blindly searched the word 'amnesia'. While this movie doesn't try to hide that it uses the construct of 'amnesia', it tactfully uses it as a stepping stone to something much bigger.
At its base, this movie is a fantastically paced mystery-thriller that never loses momentum and keeps you guessing until the very end. While the story as a whole holds its own, I think I especially liked this movie b/c I truly found myself experiencing all the emotions that the protagonist experiences. Yes, I know, (duh) that's the goal of every actor/director, right?
It's not easy but if you can get the audience emotionally invested in the characters, they will genuinely care what happens to them next, all you need is a good story to go along with it. I believe this movie encompasses just that.
If you like movies told in first-person POV narratives like 'Oldboy', you'll love this one!
