A tight, terrific little thriller
Explores some of the varied faces of lying and deception in our society from the inconsequential to the deeply harmful.
Audience Reviews for Deceiver
Though Deceiver sometimes confuses being manipulative with being clever, it has enough twists and turns to make it an interesting ride. To say it's smart would be a bit of a stretch, the plot is a bit outlandish, but it is unique enough to give the film a fresh feel. One might become easily frustrated by its non-traditional narrative, but its not meant as such, instead focusing on the characters, and their role in this mind game, almost in the style of a Lynch film. This emphasis on character succeeds largely due to the underrated Tim Roth, who owns almost every scene he's in. 3.5/5 Stars
Grim, gritty, smart, and full of surprises, Tim Roth plays a very rich, very smart young man being questioned by two detectives who aren't all that they seem on the surface. The detectives (Chris Penn and Michael Rooker) are investigating a gruesome murder for which they have few leads. Tim Roth's character, Wayland, becomes the prime suspect although the evidence is weak. We are never sure who is in charge of the interrogation, as Wayland is very manipulative and the detectives are not squeaky clean, either. This one had the viewer hooked from start to finish.
Tries so hard to be a psychological thriller, then tries to be a Tarantino movie with the backstories, then tries to tie it all up, trips over its own feet, lands on its nose, breaks its nose, cries and throws a tantrum - furious at its own failures.
