Everybody Has a Plan is in the vein of, if not on the same plane as, Michelangelo Antonioni's The Passenger.
Mr. Mortensen keeps you watching, even when the movie's storytelling underwhelms.
Everybody Has a Plan isn't overburdened so much as stretched pitifully thin, and the double-the-fun result is closer to the dueling-Elvises vehicle Kissin' Cousins than, say, Dead Ringers.
Its relaxed air of menace, and occasional bursts of violence hold one's attention even when the plot falters, which is often.
Even Viggo Mortensen's movingly enigmatic performance as identical twins can't help first-time Argentinean director Ana Piterbarg decide whether she is making an existential tone poem or a brutish thriller.
Wanna see/hear Viggo Mortensen get his Spanish on? That's a big part of the potential interest for Everybody Has a Plan, given the otherwise slow, dangling drama of its assumed-identity conceit.
Cinematography is pretty, and Mortensen is always watchable; but this is a slog to say the least.
[Mortensen] plays the most lackluster pair of identical twins the movies have ever conceived.
Ana Piterbarg's handsome, if uninvolving, film privileges mood over narrative and dumb brooding over character.
A low-energy Argentinian thriller that hasn't got a clue what it should do with Viggo Mortensen's reliably committed performance.
