Movie Info

This intense, twisty thriller unfolds in the darkest corners of a man's mind. Recently released from prison, mild-mannered Carl (Toby Jones) quietly attempts to move on with his life. Just as he embarks on his first date in 15 years, Carl's fresh start is shattered by the sudden reappearance of his domineering mother (Anne Reid), whose presence awakens within him a deep-seated trauma. What unfolds is a brain-warping puzzle as reality and illusion, past and present collide and explode in violence. The debut feature from Rupert Jones is a provocative psychological mystery that asks: is it possible to escape our past?

Critic Reviews for Kaleidoscope

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (3)

Studiously crafted and dutifully unsettling scenes with conclusions that are either emotionally obvious or needlessly muddied.

December 12, 2017 | Full Review…

Provides juicy opportunities for its leads to deliver tour-de-force performances - and they don't disappoint.

December 8, 2017 | Full Review…

Committing completely to Carl's wobbly perceptions, the filmmakers mire us in a hackneyed swamp of narrative uncertainty.

December 7, 2017 | Full Review…

Kaleidoscope is a low-budget psychological thriller that should be compulsory viewing for film students, showing what can be achieved with good actors and a decent script, even when other resources are obviously limited.

November 12, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Like the view through the kaleidoscope of the title, a cherished remnant of a rare happy memory, the facts of the story are fractured and distorted, seen through the prism of a broken mind.

November 12, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

A pleasingly discombobulating thriller.
