Tracy Bonser’s review:
It's been years since the last time I watched this, so glad I decided to watch it again. Even better than I remember it being (if that is even possible).
Adrian Lyne uses really creative filmmaking to add to the horror of this film. The whole opening sequence once everyone starts freaking out is still one of the most horrific scenes I've watched. Not sure why, but it really gets to me. I even threw up the pizza I was eating and tossed the rest in the bin (1. Don't know why I decided to eat while watching it in the first place 2. You probably didn't need to know about that but I figured it added to the review).
His role as Jacob Singer is one of my favourites from Tim Robbins, other than Mystic River and Shawshank.
Brilliant movie, with very disturbing themes. I also love that Jacob is reading The Stranger also known as The Outsider when he's on the train. It's great when you see little things like that adding to the meaning of the film.
