Stars: Ewan McGregor, Naomi Watts, Ryan Gosling, Bob Hoskins, Janeane Garofalo, B D Wong, Kate Burton

Director: Marc Forster

A baffling psychological thriller. You may lose your grip on the plot some time before psychiatrist McGregor loses his grip on reality as he gets enmeshed in the case of a man (Gosling), who may believe himself responsible for the deaths of his parents in a car crash and now threatens to kill himself on Brooklyn Bridge.

Nothing, of course, is quite what it seems, and may well be a figment, or development of one of the characters' imaginations. Don't worry: director Forster and writer David Benioff are not interested in explanations - nullifying any reason you might have to see this film.
