Being a big Michael Shannon fan I was looking forward to this. Even though I dont remember seeing it on the radar anywhere, so I didnt expect toooo much. But this was quite boring. What was supposed to be some kind of mysterious thriller just didnt materialize. It was a slow boring soap affair that had no sizzle . Two stars only for Shannon and Weisz but thats about it.

Found it impossible to stay awake during this film. It is duller than watching paint dry, and there was no indication that it would be worth watching any more than the 15 minutes I laboured through.

This movie makes no sense. Tries so hard to be some artsy, avant garde film. Disappointing. Good thing it was only 90 odd minutes long.

Apparently, the thinking went like this: Remember that movie "Catch Me if You Can"? Let's remake that, but have a 30-something selfish woman instead of a lovable teen, and let's take out all the fun stuff, and make it dark. OOOH, and let's throw in a bunch of flashbacks that are meaningless. And!! Let's make all the characters as unlikable as possible, and NO action at all! This is gonna be awesome!" The only part that wasn't truly horrible was the cameo with stars, but it was so out of context with the rest of the movie that it just wasn't believable at all and somehow manage to make Kathy Bates and Danny Glover look like ham actors.

This movie is just plain dumb. It's based on the story of a woman who frequently changes her identity, tracks down an old flame, and draws him into her game. This could be an interesting story but here it's not. It's just a surface story without much development and it ends in a pretty predictable way- the woman walks off presumably into a different adventure but you have no idea what's going to happen to her. And I DIDN'T CARE! There was not enough character development here to even make me like or dislike her. Just didn't care.

So out of curiosity I watched the directors commentary. Turns out his main goal was to make a low budget film without having much of a plan. It was obvious that he thought he developed a film that was innovative, clever, deep, and rather witty. His musings about how he thought he had accomplished this were more interesting than the movie itself.

There is actually no part of this movie that is original; it's just many often done stories stunted and pushed together.

Watched the first 10 minutes, then the next 10....but that was all. Not sure what the point of the film was going to be and it was too boring to get into it.
