    ★★

    There is a scene where Connie Nikas tries to explain to Ray why he is different than he is. But no. No he isn't any different. In fact, he's worse because he is clearly smarter and STILL ends up in the same place AND he has dragged his brother down with him. He's just too arrogant to see it. Did that scene exist just to hit us over the head?

    This movie was not as "hip and edgy" as it wanted to be.

    Surprisingly touching and emotional. We need more films like this.

    The cinematography is great. The music is disappointing; it's mostly a score of ambience with the exception of a few moments. Plus it is almost constant throughout the film and I found myself straining to hear dialogue at times as a result. I also didn't find myself as engaged in the characters and story as I had hoped.

    I love Christopher Nolan but I didn't love this film.

    I enjoyed the simplicity of this film and I thought the acting was spot on. I had read that the film "isn't what you think it is" going into it. That's fine by me, I don't mind being surprised. I was genuinely excited to see it! I just didn't like how the film had all of these moments that seemed relevant to the plot that ended up having nothing to do with whatever "conclusion" there is. I have to say…
