*** SPOILERS BELOW ***
This isn’t usually the type of movie I watch, watching the trailer I thought it leaned more towards horror than a psychological thriller but I was wrong. This was one of those movies that keep you guessing throughout the whole movie and when you think you know what’s going on you don’t.
I would have rated it 5 out of 5 if I didn’t figure out what was going on at the beginning of the movie. The movie is about a mind the is a mind detective, as in he enters peoples minds to bring out memories. There is a 16-year-old girl Anna that decides to go on a hunger strike so her wealthy parents call in the mind detective to help her end her strike. Which to me really didn’t make sense, why have a mind detective for that? Anyway, as he is going through her memories he uncovers a lot more disturbing things, or so you think. Is Anna really letting her see her memories or is she creating fake memories for him?
A couple of things that bothered me was inconsistencies in some of the details. When the detective went to talk to one of Anna’s classmates she said there was no Mousey at their school. But when the detective looked in the yearbook there was a Mousey, it just wasn’t who Anna said it was. Just little details like that, that drives me nuts. Even with that though it’s a really good movie and worth the watch.
Movie Rating: 4 out of 5
