Ohhhhhh myyyyy GOOODDDD.
You need to see this movie. I theater-hopped from Wolfman to this, satisfied with the Wolfman, and thinking this would suck. I was fucking WRONG.
I LOVE the kind of movies that are mind-fucks, make you THINK, make you try and solve the mystery of the movie, so the audience tries to riddle it out, and at the end, there’s a HUGE twist. But this movie did what most thrillers don’t, the twist made PERFECT sense, answered all the questions, and delivered the BAM factor every good twist needs.
There were some Holocaust scenes that were 100% sad and glorious at the same time, and i loved those flashbacks
Some of the scenes of this movie (the flashbacks) were delightful to simply look at, beautifully shot. The look and feel of the flashbacks and of his nightmares were extremely creative, artistic and in a good way- not a sloppy random way.
Leonardo DiCaprio proved to me ONCE again why hes one of my top 3 favorite actors, the man can ACT. Why hasn’t he gotten an Oscar?? I dont know. His acing in this movie was top notch, i was wowed.
The WHOLE movie was a huge twist that has you holding on to anything, and THEN in the end… Leo says ONE LINE in the last scene that concludes the movie… and it SHOCKS you. If you understand exactly what he meant when he said it, youll riddle out what his character was about.
Visual Effects: (The few over-styled flashbacks were 100%)
PLEASE GO WATCH IT. like- now.
