Truly imaginative but all the twists and turns make the overall film difficult to follow. Plus Gordon-Levitt has not reached leading man status yet.
I very much disagree, for how difficult and complex this story could have been, it was very well laid out, in my opinion. Perhaps the unorthodox approach wasn't your cup of tea but I, for one, found it refreshing. This is not Gordon-Levitt's first lead role, but if you didn't think he was worthy before, then this performance was enough to earn him his stripes.

It has been three weeks since the movie debuted and the theaters was packed as if it was opening night. I know nothing about the film before hand--which was great. But the exposition and all the relevant points were explained plausible within the movie without feeling clunky and from that time forward you understood everything about what was going on and the rules. Try not taking so many background breaks.
And there is a movie called 500 Days of Summer,very dialogue heavy and emotionally investing--see it. JGL carries that entire movie like you are watching a cousin. He is must watch in our house.

He more than deserves leading man status. He is one of the only actors out there that seems to choose his films based on quality and not quantity. Have you seen Mysterious Skin, Lookout, Brick, Hesher, or 50/50? All are damn good movies and all have Levitt in the leading role. Even Premium Rush was a great movie, despite my worries before going in to it. By the far the most talented actor out there right now of the younger generation.
