    Interesting concept with some really strange dialogue choices. Cruise is Cruise, Russell is Russell.

    Meaning of the film ultimately falls short with some weird sliding doors shit that doesn't really work. Or make sense.

    That being said, I enjoyed it, I think it just tried a little too hard. Someone else here on Letterboxd mentioned this film is reminiscent of Eternal Sunshine but the reality is this is a poor man's version of it.

    What a shitshow. I love shitty action movies and this might be a sign of my evolution as a consumer of film. The Fallen series is great and I had some hope for Gerard Butler here but the performance has no heart.

Funnily enough I don't think he had much to work with here in terms of a meaty role but I'm really enjoying each of his movies that I've seen. This movie is, well, quite weird. Good, but weird. I had no real idea of what to expect, I didn't even know it was directed and written by Refn. Mind you, I've only seen Drive, however…
