Secret Window Reviews
the ending is so perfect. depp is so awesome in the last few scenes. i get goosebumps every time i watch it. and it's not just the twist. it's how everything concludes, especially the final shot biting the corn
When we don't see why we can no longer see the wsy we used to when we haven't felt seeing thst same passion and thrill as we used too. When we don't see what creative mind it takes to take over our mind that make us see somethings when they are not there. When we see our mind tries to help us when we can't see what blocks us, where our career started to unravel to go back and fit it to how we should have seen it the first place. When we see we unlocked that same feeling we once could see but forgot to see a new life worth persuing when our past is gone and nothing wrong interferes with our creative passion.
It was based on the novel, though the original title makes more sense than this film. Maybe they wanted to avert the spoiler. But I don't think it would have affected much, because the twist comes at the final segment. The tale of a writer who is in the middle of divorce and now living alone is the lake house got threatened by a stranger, because according to him he stole his story. Followed by many unpleasant events, how he gets out of the trouble told in the next half.
Feels just an okay kind. Though Johnny Depp was good. The suspense was good, particularly in the first half, but later it comes falling down. The second half was average, the twist was not interesting enough. After some point, you might predict it, but the point is it was too familiar. I especially did not like the finale, it was like not in detail. Still a watchable film, because of the actor and for decently made. So I think worth a watch if you keep a low expectation.
