Personal opinions
This movie is in the genera of mystical perception of reality, and plays with the mind. It probably inspired some of the newer movies such as Vanilla Sky. If you are into this category of movies this is mandatory.

This is the sort of movie that you twist your brain to try to figure out what is really going on, and keeps you glued to the end just to get the solution. It is an interesting psychological thriller that plays with your perception of reality. Michael Douglas plays in a lot of great movies and this is one of them.

So what’s bad?

Bottom Line
It is definitely a good thriller movie.
Rating: 7/10 (where 10 is the best).
