This is a very gritty psychological thriller with solid direction and even better screenplay. Jennifer Aniston impresses as the striking woman torn with guilt and regret. She manages to stay likeable despite the turns in the film. It is, in my opinion, her most accomplished role to date, too bad she seems to prefer mediocre comedies that have given her relative success yet not provided acting challenges. Clive Owen remains credible all along playing the good, the bad, and “the almost ugly”. Vincent Cassel is amazing as the baddie who turns on the heat when least expected.
The first time I watched this movie I rated it five stars. This time around I didn’t have such emotional reaction, but I still think this film is just something else. Great movie, gives me the creeps every time!
