Lucky Number Slevin (2006)

This was one weird movie. Weird, but awesome.

The plot: Slevin Kelevra (Josh Hartnett) gets caught up in an old rivalry; tale of revenge. Two mob bosses want a debt returned, yet one of them (Morgan Freeman) is willing to let the debt go if Slevin kills the other guy's son. The cops show up too, and a ghost, a Hitman, a real professional who goes by the name of Mr. Goodkat (Bruce WIllis). There's a girl involved too (Lucy Liu), and a lot of small-time thugs, and cops, and horses, and what a mess of a plot it is until you start figuring things out!

They leave you clues though. So pay attention to those clues! I didn't get a single one, but I did start figuring things out the first moment Slevin really turned cold. He's just a kid after all. A kid can't just turn cold like that. There must be something else, and the introduction fortunately stands apart enough from the rest of the movie to offer an alternative. He was just a kid, after all...

It's all filmed very stylishly, with as much a play on words and dialog as the play on the plot. It's classed as mystery, thriller, drama... maybe even a little action, but there's plenty of comedy too, and a romance that's so light and intimate it feels real. Refreshingly different; experimentally filmed thriller flick which is both unexpectedly complicated and ingeniously superficial at the same time. I liked it! It wasn't at all what I expected, but I was positively surprised. Great watch.
