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 (16) | Top Critics (6)

An intricately crafted, infinitely wrongfooting psychological thriller in which conflicting realities coalesce, diverge and regroup like so many shifting formations of jewel-colored glass.

Top Critic

"Kaleidoscope" is brilliantly crafted and performed, but it's a bit too taken with its own muddling of facts and form to truly hook into.

December 20, 2017 | Full Review…

Haggard, painful, longing, poignant, confused, alarmed, amused, dejected, sinister... [Toby] Jones can be all these things without saying a word. You're with him all the way, trying to decode the mysteries of his life and psyche.

Top Critic

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.
