It is both straightforward and abstract, using cinematic tricks to put the audience in Sam/Henry's headspace. The result is a bit a sense of intentional vertigo that may cloud the films ultimately humanist point.

A sappy melodrama touted in a supernatural angle...

Ewan McGregor, Naomi Watts and Ryan Gosling all lower their box office merit with this unbaked psychological thriller about a suicidal man (Gosling) taunting his eccentric psychologist (McGregor) after surviving a horrible car accident.

The effect is something indescribably cinematic, as the inner mechanics of the mind's eye are vividly translated onto the big screen. Beautiful, haunting and ultimately transcendent...

Stay wants to be good, creepy fun, but by the middle of the film, I was so uninterested in the plot I became obsessed with McGregor's pants

Ultimately the film delivers such a weak payoff that it makes nearly everything that came before it seem rather pointless.

A head-scratching thriller...

So often, I have seen films like this that try to walk the fine line between creativity and confusion. Director Marc Forster manages to walk that line with precision.

The technical virtues of the film may outstrip the content, but it's an entertaining film, nonetheless. You might want to stay around for this one.

Pretty to look at, tough to follow, and, ultimately, difficult to swallow, Stay certainly isn't a bad film ... but it sure as heck isn't one you'll be raving about anytime soon.

A disaster from beginning to end. If you're going to Stay anywhere, Stay at home.

Revela-se apenas mais uma variação de uma premissa utilizada por vários outros filmes.

It's the type of film that, as soon as it was over, had me wishing it were out on DVD already so I could watch it again.

...there is nothing interesting about the payoff; it seems like little more than a convenient excuse for a director to have fun, throwing a bunch of wild stuff up on the screen.

A psychological thriller in a category by itself.

Foster's payoff is so chintzy it would make even Freud run away.
