    ClearPlay in Action!

    Language is the condemning factor of this movie and what ClearPlay spends most of its filtering energy on. There is blasphemy, a handful of “S” words and 6 “F” words to be exact. With Medium filters you’ll still see some kissing, Ewan McGregor tells his girlfriend to take off her clothes but she just laughs and the scene switches, but you’ll be spared at least one scene of a sexual and semi-nude nature. The thing with this one to be careful of is the topic of suicide, a creepy scene where a woman spontaneously begins to bleed beneath the bandana on her head and some general strangeness going on in the theme. With filters set I think you could watch this one with teens 16 and up who have an appetite for strange.

    Will You Stay Around to Finish This Movie’s Reality?...

    This little film of deep proportions has a very specific audience who will appreciate its flavor. Director Marc Forster is clearly a man who doesn’t take for granted any level of any given scene. He puts clues right out there for audience members who pay attention (no multi-tasking during this film) but wont spell anything out for you either. After the first tip off when I saw something in the back ground of one shot that was very obviously a clue, I was riveted to the screen and delighted whenever I spotted another little clue/mystery. Anything from background people/lighting to clothing details and scene changes are possibilities to help you unravel the reality of this movie. The ending may upset you at first, it did me, but if you’re like me you’ll be thinking about it for days and figuring things out as you go. If you like tricky movies that are never what they seem and like to put a little effort into your movie viewing experience then give this one a go and leave a comment with your interpretation.
