Audience Reviews for The Music of Chance


WOW - there really should be more reviews of this movie.
This is truly a movie that I had NO IDEA where it was going to lead me in the next few minutes. Spader is simply amazing and intriguing - and you just start wondering if these normal people are stuck in some sort of metaphysical hell.
Complete character piece and worth your 90 minutes.
