22 Mar - Very disturbing film, but at the same time, I couldn't stop watching it. We all start out in basically the same place, so how do some people get so sick and twisted along the way?  -- Kit

20 Mar - Joaquin Phoenix (and his character) made the movie worth watching. When did he get so hot! -- Ash 

28 Feb - I really enjoyed the movie very intense and unexpecting. Very edge of the seat type film. -- Daniel
