Follow TV Tropes
This is what all aspiring screenwriters dream about being able to pull off. a story that is amazingly seemless in presentation, but dripping with enough small clues that a rewatch shows viewers that all is not as it seemed. but still, the truth is hidden until the big reveal.
spectacular acting from a dozen major (or to be) actors. dialogue and situations that don't feel forced, contrived or otherwise manufactured.
if you can avoid the spoiler twist, it's perhaps the greatest shock in moviemaking history. and it feels *real*, not an ass-pull that you had no hope of seeing.
an engaging tale as well, before the twist. which is what makes it all the better.
I simply cannot imagine a better way to pull off this kind of rig pull on the audience.
and the amazing kicker? yhe film doesnt pander to you to explain what really happened. you're left stunned at the relegation, and then totally hung out to dry - there IS no "truth". All you know is that you be been lied to the entire film, and you have no clue at all what happen3d, or what (if any) was even partly true.
and that why it is *glorious*
