I liked this more than The Illusionist but that isn't saying much, now is it? Director Christopher Nolan jumbled everything all up a la Memento to the point that I wasn't ever really sure what the hell was going on nor did I really care to fully figure it out. Maybe it would have helped if I had watched this in one sitting rather than a number of viewings spread out over a few weeks.
Christian Bale, Hugh Jackman, and Michael Caine were all good. I liked the twists and turns. I liked David Bowie. I liked looking at Scarlett. I liked the rivalry and the trickery and the water tricks. I just wish I had had the energy to figure out what was going on.
Directed by Christopher Nolan
