Editorial Reviews

Number 23 (BD)

Ever notice how phenomena and events tie to the number 23? Walter Sparrow has: 2012 (20+1+2), the end of the Mayan calendar…23 pairs of chromosomes in the human body…February 3 (2/3), Walter's birthday. Here, there, everywhere, Walter sees connections. And it may be driving him to madness and murder. Jim Carrey puts aside his comedy persona to portray haunted, desperate Walter in an immersive psychological thriller guided by Joel Schumacher (The Lost Boys). The connections grow. The mystery deepens. The thrills add up in The Number 23.

I feel I must correct a bunch of bad talk about this movie. First off, you have no clue as to how it is going to end, and is possibly the best movie ever created to keep your mind in question to the very last minute before it slaps you.

People have talked badly about the scenes where "Jim" is acting as a detective, but it is supposed to be portrayed in how a regular guy would see things happening, if he were imagining himself as the character in a book he were reading. It has the feel of a comic book to some degree, because it is portrayed in an artistic sense and not a literal, serious acting sense.

The story is one of the most brilliant I have ever witnessed, and all the acting was as it should be. Me and everyone I questioned agreed that Jim plays a more convincing "Mentally Insane" person than Johnny Depp even came close to in "Secret Window". Very surprising how well Jim Carrery did, in fact. If you like something that will really make you think, or enjoy a little bit of a challenge, and have an imagination, then this movie will be one of the best you will ever lay eyes on. A very artistic mind set in the making of this film.

Though I'd read reviews before seeing the movie, I decided to see Number 23 for myself. I like Jim Carrey more in serious roles and this one did not dissapoint. Though a bit predictable, I loved every freaking minute, especially the viginettes of Carrey's Walter character imaginaging himself as Det. Fingerling. A brilliant performance of a man coming unhinged by memories which may or may not be his own--and a wife who may or may not be a murderer. All in all, very clever and enjoyable.

When I saw the preview for NUMBER 23, I thought it was going to be a great film. The concept of the number 23 being part of some global conspiracy is a great idea for a mystery thriller. Also, Jim Carrey has done a great job of choosing roles that display the full range of his acting talents, not just ones that show his comic prowess and I was looking forward to seeing him in a mystery thriller film. But instead of a mystery thriller, I saw a hacked up film that barely qualifies as a mystery, has no thrills, and very little suspense.

Carrey portrays Walter Sparrow, and older man married to a younger woman named Agatha (Virginia Madsen) who works in a bakery. Walter works as an animal control specialist. Apparently Walter's job isn't all that exciting, but it is something he enjoys doing. At the end of the work day on his birthday, he gets bitten by a stray dog. He chases the dog until he looses him in a cemetery. The incident causes Walter to be late meeting his wife for dinner, which leads her to browsing a used bookstore, where she finds a self-published book about the number 23 that she buys for Walter as a gift. Apparently Walter was so late that Agatha was able to read the entire book while waiting for him. Walter must be a slow reader because it takes him over a week before he finishes it at the end of which time he finds himself going slightly insane, seeing the number 23 everywhere he goes and having dreams about murdering his wife. All reading and no play seems to make Walter a dull boy. Is Walter really going insane? Or is the book actually part of a larger story that Walter has become involved in? Dum, dum, dum, dum, DUM! (Look what I did, onomatopoeia and foreshadowing combined!).

I was really disappointed by NUMBER 23.

Format: DVD
When Agatha Sparrow (Virginia Madsen) has an extra moment at a book store while waiting for her husband Walter (Jim Carrey), she picks up a book about the number 23. Written by Topsy Kretts (I would have gone with something like Drew Peacock or Jacques Strap), it's about loose numerology, and connections between statistics that soon consume Walter's life. Before making it through more than the first few chapters, he realizes that all the important numbers in his life, his important dates, his address, his zip code, his in-seam (just kidding), and his IQ (not kidding) can all be easily manipulated to some variation of the number 23. Paranoia ensues.

Jim Carrey's dual-performance as Walter, and Fingerling, the sociopath detective from the book causing the paranoia, is masterful. Carrey shows his range as an actor, distancing himself from the rubber-faced contortionist act that made him a superstar. And Virginia Madsen as a cleavage-displaying, sex-craved Fabrizia, a woman into bondage, sadomasochism, and rape fantasies is equally jaw dropping. In fact, combining her character with the cameo by Rhona Mitra makes me wish there were a sequel.

Portions of the cinematography are similarly ingenious. There are extreme color contrasts, with blacks darker than an eclipse battling bleached alabaster whites for the viewer's focus. The combination reminded me of aspects from Sin City.

Finally, the ending is interesting but a little predictable. If one allows themselves to delve into the story, it's quite easy to ignore the foreshadowing. For those who enjoy pointing out how a magician does something more than enjoying the magic, you may hate the ending.

As far as the actual point of the movie, well, that's pretty stupid.

The Number 23 (Unrated edition)
Because the sex scenes were a little bit more explicit than in the theatrical version.
