Possibly Nolan's most restrained work, as well as one of his best. There's no mind bending plot lines, no complex character arcs, no non linear storytelling, and yet, it really works. It's very refreshing to see Nolan tackle a simple storyline. It's a simple film noir that does what it needs to do and does it well.
One of my favorite films and certainly my favorite by Christopher Nolan. I just adore everything about this film. It's just such a great, mind bending puzzle full of emotion and provocative messages. I love the moral ambiguity of the main characters. You never know who it is you're supposed to root for until you finish the 5th or 6th viewing, and even then, it still makes you question whether or not it even counts as a character we're meant to root for. I especially love Nolan's direction, and how it evokes the works of Terrence Malick as well as Film Noir. There's something about his voice overs that really helps give the film a certain atmosphere of being so close to the answers yet further away from them as well. The ending, I guess, can be disappointing for some, but unlike Nolan's other works, where the exposition get's in the way of the meaning, this film manages to suck you into it's message perfectly with the answer's given to you. It really catches you off guard. All in all, a fanatstic film that I will continue to claim as my second favorite film.
Oh, f*** you, director Harold Cronk, whoever the hell you are. You have done a horrid disservice to not only Atheists, but to Muslims as well. This film is filth. It's a disgusting piece of propaganda that's manipulative, inaccurate, and all around dirty. That's what this film is, dirty. It is one of the worst things I've ever had to sit through. I hold myself back from calling the film out on the Facebook page. It so bad. It's worse than Jack and Jill. It's worse than Master in Disguise. It's all around despicable.
Despite a few annoying musical montages and a disappointing 3rd act (one so agonizingly close to being fixable), Joss Whedon's script and the chemistry between the two leads (who both barely share any screen time together) is what makes this film so beautiful and so rich and so loveable. The premise alone is so simple yet so ingenious! Two people from different sides of the country fall in love telepathically. The romance is so well done that I have no problem believing that these two are in love. When they're happy together, you feel their happiness, and when they're angry with each other, you believe that they're angry and unhappy, and you feel bad for them. It's almost as good as Spike Jonze's film "Her", with the difference being the pacing between these two films. Even the third act, despite how much it hurts the film, is still saved by the direction and overall happiness you feel for these two. The dialog is witty, fun, and all around charming, and it is the type of Joss Whedon dialog that is so recognizable and so full of life and so intelligent. It's amazing how well he writes his characters.
