An erotic thriller/adventure movie with Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman?! How had I never heard of this one before?
It doesn't disappoint either. It delves into a world of sex and mystery that I'd rather not detail here, just enjoy. There's duality as well as ambiguity. There's both the theatrical and the authentic. It's a clash of worlds, and a glimpse into one that the main character might never have believed he'd step into.
I'm not entirely convinced with Tom's acting, it doesn't feel on par with everyone around him, but everything else... well, what can I say. It's something else. It's one of those movies I never expected to see, and one I didn't expect to go as deep as it did. Stanley Kubrick knows his thing.
rated 4/5: fo shizzle
