My my my… this is another one of those movies that does not make sense, even when the finale is wrapping up and the movie is ending. It makes absolutely no sense, there is no direction in the film, and it is just awful. Even the 1 hour and 29 minute runtime couldn’t save this awfulness. Joaquin Phoenix plays the main character, Joe, who is skilled in finding people. When he starts his missioned to find an abducted young girl, his life starts to unravel and he doesn’t know what’s real and what’s his imagination. That’s the synopsis, sounds intriguing doesn’t it? Well, don’t let that fool you. This isn’t one of those movies like Unsane where the character doesn’t know if she’s losing her marbles or not but the audience does. This is a movie where not a single person know if he is losing his marbles or not and it’s just so completely frustrating.
Most of the time when I watch movies like this, I’m typically thrown back into the movie in the end where things are explained or made more clear, but this one just ends. It just ends. This review is probably going to be short, because obviously I can’t think of any other words to say about this movie. One question though, why on Earth does he take off his shirt in that girls room and start balling his eyes out? Someone who has seen this movie and understands the rationale behind the writers thoughts please please explain this to me. It get a Hated It from me. (0/5)
