Kudos to writer/director/co-star Philippe Caland for crafting such a refreshingly unpredictable cautionary tale and for coaxing inspired performances from an A-list cast which inludes by Forest Whitaker, Virginia Madsen and Minnie Driver.

After a bumpy start, Ripple Effect begins to show why Whitaker, Virginia Madsen and Minnie Driver signed on as executive producers and co-stars.

Starts with a not-very-original insight and takes too many shortcuts delivering it.

Several ordinarily banal movies soldered into one amazingly bad one.

Thank God Whitaker is here to bring a bit of real pathos and ambiguity to his role as the spiritual guide who's gained wisdom through adversity, because without his Oscar-winning chops, this exercise in pop mysticism would have been too painful to bear.

I understand Amer is supposed to be going through some sort of spiritual crisis here, but Caland plays him as so self-centered and precious that it's impossible to feel any sympathy for him.

Nothing more than an elongated soap opera, sans the self-awareness.
