    As a crime thriller, its more of a misdemeanor.

    If you are interested and seeing this film and don't want to waste the hour and 40 minutes then just watch the trailer because it literally spells out the major moments from all three acts. SERIOUSLY. DO NOT WATCH THE TRAILER! ugh!

Jake Gyllenhaal nails the dual roles, the camerawork and score are all moody and add to the atmosphere. I wish the film was longer and explained some things but Holy Shit, did my heart stop at that ending. Wow.
