I'm finding it hard to feel anything really about this film. It looks very good and all, but it's incredibly overplayed and becomes a little silly. The character of the fool was extremely annoying and I see no reason whatsoever for his inclusion. Everything he said was stupid and like a slap to the head. Just not on board with this, what can I say.

The performances are top notch, the story is thrilling, mysterious and twisty and the pacing is right on target. It's also amazing how well it works on rewatches, when you know how it all turns out. It hits the spot emotionally and there is enough cool ideas and tricks to keep your brain working.
