A thought-provoking and haunting exploration of how reality and dream-states may combine to form complex interactions. The line between the imagination and reality blurs when an accomplished Psychiatrist takes on a patient that appears to be suicidal.Written by
The color yellow is used prominently throughout the film. It represents sunshine, happiness, loyalty, joy, optimism, remembrance and warmth. It energizes mood and relieves depression. It's the lightest and brightest color on the color wheel. It's an attention getter - one reason taxi caps are painted yellow and in most countries traffic lights and signs are yellow, meaning caution. Even some blind people can detect the color yellow. On the other hand, it represents cowardice and deceit. Judas is often depicted wearing yellow. See more »
Many times throughout the film when an emergency siren is heard, the siren is not the shrill US siren, but an obvious European style siren. See more »
I too was part of a test audience for this film. I do agree with the last comment about the plot. The script was a little predictable and the one liners seemed a little corny at times.
The acting however, I thought was great. Ewan McGregor put in a marvelous performance, demonstrating that he is talented and can easily play a wide variety of roles. Naomi Watts, I think also put in a great performance.
Of course, I haven't as yet seen the fully edited theatre version, but so far I think it's a film that should definitely be seen.
A good film in all. 4/5
