Kind of spoilery. Don’t read if you haven’t watched the movie.This movie is much like a video game in that the main character is in complete control of everything that is happening in the story. It’s his story that he makes up on the spot using the information that is around him. This sense of control that he has is much like the sense of control I get when I play video games. I imagine that he also experiences the same joy controlling those around him that I experience controlling all of the actions of my character in a video game.
Apart from how the main character is controlling everything, it’s also interesting to see how he creates his lies. In a way, he isn’t lying in that his story has some element of truth. He and the people he was in jail with really did collaborate to pull off the heist. The only lie was that he made up a few of the names of the criminals involved with the heist and he lied about his role in everything. His story was so convincing that he managed to convince the detective that it he was the victim of it all. The detective was so sure that he was the victim that he didn’t even suspect the story that was told to him since many of the names that the main character uses are all words that were in the room. If the detective had just been more patient and more observant, he would have realized that many of the names that the main character uses are actually brand names and names of criminals whose pictures were in the room.
Nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed watching this movie and would recommend it for all audiences. If you want, you can comment your views of the movie.
