The way the studio promoted this movie and is now practically abandoning it in theaters might lead one to expect a cheapie horror toss-off, but it's actually far better than that. Director Marc Forster (Monster's Ball, Finding Neverland) has always been infatuated with filters and editing tricks, but here they serve an equally surreal plot. Psychiatrist Ewan McGregor has a disturbed patient (Ryan Gosling) who promises to commit suicide in three days. As the doctor probes the case further, he encounters people who should be dead but aren't, strange cases of dejà vu, and crowd scenes populated entirely by twins and triplets. Meanwhile, his lovely fiancee (Naomi Watts) has stopped taking her medication and may be reverting into her own depressive past. The movie's tagline sucks the wind out of Forster's sails a bit by steering you toward the real ending, and the initial build-up is slow. Nonetheless, it's a thoughtful thriller that's worth your time.
