Yes, there is the complex interwoven character study twists and turns that this starts out to be, and for much of the production almost up to the end, that's what it seems to be, more or less . . .
But wait for it, the final twist is definitely a twist that is more than worth it.
Unfortunately, it would be almost impossible to even hint at what is really awaiting the viewer without stumbling across the threshold of a spoiler boundary, so I just can't go there with this review.
What can be said here is kudos plus for Fairuza Balk, who delivers her character "Rose" about as effectively as any actress possibly could, she definitely has talent in this category.
As for the overall theme of the story, well, the take away message might be a popular phrase from a previous era, "question reality". Particularly in today's world, perhaps more than ever, that message connects.
If anything, extra stars for a cleverly original concept, an evermore difficult task in today's world where virtually every conceivable plot and storyline that can be possibly imagined has been conjured up and rehashed endlessly over and over.
Oops, that might be a hint, sort of . . . OK, enough said.
A solid 4 stars for this one
I turned off the player at that point. Such idiocy.
The sequel will be mostly about lawsuits :)
