    I have a love/hate realtionship with movies that I don't fully get at the first time. Honestly, it took me 2 or 3 more times until I fully (at least I think so) understood the whole... stuff. And once I started to grasp the whole of the story, it became more and more interesting and more importantly - it didn't let me go. I thought about it a lot for weeks, the theories, the ideas, the cinematography. That's what I…

    Wading through the esoteric science fiction of the late 90s and 00s, one picks up a thread of emotional and personal narratives that connect the tissues. One of the primary narratives that has happened is that of choice and effect, and the possibility of multiple worlds existing at the same time. This is an outgrowth of one segment of string theory that was posited in the 60s and still hangs on today, if only for some cool ass shit.

    I watched this film purely by chance and not knowing what to expect. And it completely surprised me.

    I really, really dug it.

    Jared Leto is great in this and Van Dormael continues to make great films. The non-linear narrative works perfectly here and is not confusing in the list. This little "trick" turns a good film into something special. The ideas brought forth and the topics explored make for an exciting existential, psychological and philosophical film. A shame that this took 4 years for it to find distribution in the USA but now that it has hopefully people will be able to see what they have been missing.

    I don't know what it is about this movie but I just love it. Maybe the way I can relate to Nemo, or am so amazed by the unique storytelling and very interesting story. Not to mention the amazing cinematography and transitions. Mr. Nobody is one of my favorites all time and a great story about one child's incredible choice.

    I thought Mr. Nobody's story entertaining. The hook that starts the movie is a little boy, Nemo Nobody, who is put in the awful situation of being forced to choose between his separating mom and dad.

    This boy is special, though, and he can see/imagine in accurate, complete detail every nuance that arises from each decision made both by him and those around him.

    The movie not only explores the outcomes of both decisions, but it mixes the results up…

    Tries way too hard with no clear purpose. I can respect ambition even if it fails but this is just way too forced.

    While it was interesting to watch and had a handful of genuinely emotional scenes, this movie ultimately didn't really move me. I think that's because it feels rather small despite the fact that its scale extends to the edges of space and time; it tries to cover love, the butterfly effect, the difficulty of making choices, and the inexorable passage of time, but in this film all these things are only addressed with regard to the effect they have on…

    It's one of those films that is not really about a story. It's a head-scratcher, mind-boggler. It's a postmodern puzzler. I enjoyed the ride very much.

    The one thing is, even when narrative is not your movie's main goal, your script still needs to give the characters things to say that sound believable in the moment.

    Sometimes these high-concept idea pictures can feel unbelievable. This one stretches credulity in the dialogue far more than the concepts of space, time, and oneness of existence. Still worth checking out.

    Nemo Nobody is indecisive. He's a clever little shit, but he's still indecisive. And that's about it.

    How does one review a film they couldn't even quite finish? They can't very well dissect its intellectual merits because they didn't receive the full statement from the auteur. Perhaps they can merely review based on its worth in terms of cinema, but that's somewhat fluid as well, isn't it? Regardless, it's that approach I take to most reviews anyway.

    Mr. Nobody is…

    Mr. Nobody stars an excellent Jared Leto as Nemo, a 120 year-old man who in the late 21st century, will soon be the last man to die of old age. He tries to tell his life story to an archivist who cannot understand the multiple time streams that seem to exist in Nemo's often self-contradictory narrative. The movie serves as a touching exploration of temporal theory in which each choice that is made not only changes the future, but creates…

    Veamos: Algo de The Butterfly Effect por aquí, un pelín de Donnie Darko por allá, unas pinceladas de Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind y un toque de Tree of Life. Eso es Mr. Nobody.

    Tengo una fuerte relación de amor/odio hacia esta película. Hay momentos en los que me fascina y otros en los que la detesto, pero nunca un punto intermedio y/o estable.

    El problema es que su ambición y pseudo-intelectualidad innecesaria me chocaron un poco, también puede…
