      Full Review | Original Score: 8/10 | Sep 13, 2020

      Full Review | Original Score: 5.7/10 | Sep 11, 2020

      Besides the similarities in playing with time and structure, Nolan is already zeroed in on his favorite cinematic theme: obsession.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/4 | Dec 20, 2012

      a harbinger of things to come, an exercise in the kind of temporal gymnastics, sleight-of-hand shifts in perspective, and rigorous insights into the dark depths of human nature that have defined Nolan's later films

      Low-budget debut from Memento's director subtly transposes you to a sinful urban nightmare.
