This is one of the best movies I have ever seen. It is a classic thriller that is so well done and intelligent. It is not a film to be missed. The plot is not really all that mysterious, but it is a perfect example of a thriller. The acting is superb and the writing is not at all pretentious. It is based on a true story and it shows. There is not one bad performance in this film. It is a must see and will stay with you long after you have seen it.

I was going to write a paragraph about how great this movie was, but I was able to focus on something else, and now I'm going to go back and write a paragraph about how great it was. I saw the movie, on DVD, the day after it came out. I didn't have any expectations. I have no idea if I would like it. I was like, "Yeah, I guess I'll give it a shot." I was amazed. I have no idea why people would think it's bad. It's about as deep and interesting as a murder mystery can be. The movie is about a woman, who is murdered, and you can see her body before the murder, and you know that she was murdered, but you don't know exactly who was involved, and you don't know where the body is. I don't know if the movie is supposed to be about her. I saw it on DVD, and I was a little apprehensive about watching it because I didn't know if I would like it or not, but I watched it. I really enjoyed it. The best part of the movie, and the reason I am giving it an eight out of ten, is because the murder mystery is so deep. There's a lot of mystery to go through, and it's interesting. It's very disturbing, and I don't think it's a movie that you can watch with your kids, but if you are a mature person, and you are in your 30's, and you like movies that are mature, and you like to think that you can figure everything out, then you will love this movie. I was very impressed with the acting, and the way the movie was written. The director did a fantastic job with the story and the acting. I was so impressed with the writing that I gave it a ten out of ten. I can't understand why people don't like this movie. It is a very good movie, and you don't have to be a person who likes horror movies. It's a movie for anyone who likes movies. I saw this movie in the theater, and I went in with no expectations. I am giving it a ten out of ten, because it is really good.

There are some scenes in this movie that seem to be cut out for the DVD release. This is such a good example. Even the title is a miss. That was one of my biggest problems with the movie. The title "A Murder" is not an accurate representation of the movie. If you can look past that, this is a great movie. It's a thriller. It's not a "chick flick" and the sex scene is not gratuitous. I recommend this movie to anyone. It is not a "chick flick" and the sex scene was not gratuitous.

I just got back from seeing "The Last Detail" at the Cinematheque du Lac, and what a fabulous movie it was. I had the pleasure of seeing it with a theater full of French filmgoers and I was completely swept away. The story is one that we all have in our heads. Sometimes it's about a guy in a rural small town who gets caught up in a complicated web of intrigue involving the town's sheriff, the town's police chief, and the town's weird doctor. Sometimes it's about a woman who gets kidnapped by a stranger, and then gets held for ransom until the stranger comes to get her. Sometimes it's about a man who gets caught up in some type of political intrigue involving his father, a little town mayor, and the town's sheriff. Or it's about a man who is caught in a strange situation involving a mysterious man on a train and is forced to try to make sense of the situation. Some people might call this movie cliched and maybe it is, but it's really something different. It's a movie that has a lot to say, but still manages to be incredibly entertaining. It is a very different movie than what I normally watch, and I enjoyed it very much. It's not a film that I would normally watch again, but I enjoyed it, and I would definitely watch it again. I would also recommend this movie to people who like mystery/thriller/gangster movies. I think most people who watch this film will enjoy it, and I have no doubt that it will be in the top 10 movies that most people have seen. It's a good film, and I think that it's a must see.

I am a big fan of László Nemes films. I really like his movies, and I have been waiting to see this movie for some time now. I finally got the opportunity to see it. It was very good, but not great. I think that this movie is the best Hungarian movie I've seen so far. It has a good pace, good acting and a good story. The plot is really good. It is about a man who is an ex-convict, who is wrongly convicted and sent to prison for 15 years. After 15 years, he is released, and he decides to find out what happened to him, and he finds out that he is in a very strange prison, and the guards are not very nice. This film is very interesting. I think it is one of the best Hungarian movies. The acting is good, the story is interesting and the plot is good. I give this movie a 9/10.

I was actually surprised by this film. I'd heard so many stories about it being a "scary" film, and not having seen the trailer I wasn't expecting much. But I was pleasantly surprised. The idea of a movie based on a novel is almost a given, but what makes this film so interesting is the way the director told the story. Instead of being a traditional "straight-to-video" horror movie, the director wanted to show the horror of what could happen, and he made it look really scary. When we see the main character being attacked by the cat in the first scene, the next scene is a close-up of the head of the cat on the camera. Then we see the cat chasing him around the house, and then it jumps out the window. After that, we see the cat chasing the hero around the house, and we see it running away and escaping, and then it jumps back out the window. I'd even go as far as to say that the camera shot, as well as the monster in the very end, really adds to the atmosphere of the film. I'd recommend this film to anyone who has seen any of the "found footage" movies, or to people who just like a good horror film. 8/10

I would recommend this movie to anyone who loves great films. This movie is definitely one of the best movies I have ever seen. I watched this movie a long time ago, when I was really young. I did not know what to think of this movie, but I finally watched it and I was very impressed with it. The way the story of this movie unfolds is so very interesting and very unique. This movie is a must watch.

A highly recommended thriller, that gives you a good amount of tension while also offering some scares and surprises. Although it's not as engaging as it should have been, it's still a very entertaining movie. The movie starts out slow, but as the movie progresses it becomes more interesting. The movie is very well made, with a great use of colors, and some great cinematography. It also has a good use of sound, with some great soundtrack. Overall, a great thriller, but I think it could have been a little more interesting. I also don't know how the movie ends, but it does have a lot of surprises. The movie also has an interesting twist at the end, which is definitely a plus. The movie is very well directed, with some nice camera work and camera movement. The movie also has some great music. The movie is also very well written, with some nice dialogue. The movie also has some great acting. The movie is also very well shot. Overall, I think it is a great thriller, but it could have been better. It's definitely worth watching, and I think you should see it. If you enjoy thrillers, then you should definitely see this movie. It's one of the better ones I've seen. I give this movie a 9/10.

I watched this movie on cable, I love the way it is made and the way it is shown. It is one of the best movies I have ever seen in my life. It is one of those movies that you have to watch twice or else you will hate it. If you have the chance, see it, you will not regret it.

First, I would like to say that I'm not a fan of the "dramatic thriller" genre. In my view, it's an easily spoiled and monotonous, which can be an enjoyable but boring way to spend the time. I do not think that any of the characters in "The Girl Next Door" are as easy to relate to as we would expect them to be, and this is one of the reasons why I was so interested in watching it. In addition, I have always considered the supernatural as the most interesting aspect of movies, but in this case it was so much more. I know that in many movies, the supernatural aspect is also very important and important to the plot, but in this case it was just a little bit underdeveloped. The way it was handled was really good, but I felt that the movie could have gone a bit further with the supernatural element. I'm not saying that it had to be so simple, it just could have been better. But, all in all, I really enjoyed it. It was a really good movie, and it definitely deserves to be seen by more people.

I think that any critic who has not seen this film in its original version is missing out on a classic. This film is a drama, so I'm sure the original version will be different, but in my opinion this is a classic. It's a rare film that I've seen, and I'm glad I have. It's a beautiful film. I would love to see this film on the big screen.

This film is so much more than a mere thriller. It is a study of the human condition. No easy way out is presented here, and no easy way in is presented. This film is about relationships, about the fear of death, about how to deal with it, and about living a life. It is a very well made film. The cast is excellent, the writing is excellent, and the direction is superb. It is rare for a movie to have such an impact on me. I did not feel I could leave the theater before the credits rolled. I felt it was such a well-made film, I couldn't help but think about it when I went home. I have seen it three times in the past year, and I will continue to see it every time it is on television. The story is amazing. The acting is superb. The direction is outstanding. It is a perfect film. One of the best films I have ever seen. You will not want to miss this one. It is so good that it has been my personal top choice for the best film of the year.

I must admit, this movie was a bit off-putting to me. I was expecting a typical "murder mystery" type film, where the killer is introduced and the mystery unravels. Instead, I found myself thinking that the mystery would be resolved in a few minutes and then the killer would be revealed. The clues would be revealed in the last few scenes, and then I would be able to figure out the mystery. It was really a disappointment to me, and I'm not sure if it's because I'm not a fan of "murder mystery" movies, but it was very confusing to me. I just don't know if the murderer was revealed in the last few scenes or if he was revealed in the beginning, or something else. I think I just saw the movie wrong. I thought I was going to watch a horror movie, and it turned out to be a mystery movie. I thought I would like this movie, but it just didn't live up to my expectations.

This is a well made film, and I like all the characters in it. They are very believable. I think the pacing is good, and I liked the mystery. I loved the ending, and I think you should see it. It is very creepy.

I really liked this film. In fact, I have it on DVD. I know it's not what you expect from a thriller and is not the usual level of immersion into the movie you get from something like "Hannibal" or "Silence of the Lambs". But I also like movies where the twist is a big surprise, or where you're not sure what is really going on until the last few minutes, and it is hard to predict what will happen. I love this kind of movie. I don't like to say this because people do tend to like to have their own interpretation of the movie, but this is a great example of a movie that had me guessing about what was going on throughout the entire movie, and I still don't know what is actually going on. But as far as I am concerned, it is a great movie.

A pre-screening with the cast and crew at IMDb, and the three hour and forty-five minute movie was the most fascinating experience I have ever had at the movies. I loved the music, the dialogue, the overall look of the film, and the acting. I have a feeling that if I did not know the director, I would be very confused by the end. You cannot go to the movies, rent the movie, and then go to a college lecture hall and get an understanding of the movie. You have to go to the movies, and sit in the theater with the director and his co-directors, and you listen to the actors talk about the movie. I do not know if you have ever done that, but I do know it is very difficult to be able to appreciate a movie that you have not seen. I believe that the director's goal in making this movie was to allow us to learn about our brains. He was able to do that and the movie was great. It was very difficult to leave the theater. I think you should have the opportunity to leave the theater with a better understanding of what the director was trying to say, and that the actors were trying to say. He was very precise in his use of the sound and the visuals, and he made the viewer feel as if he were right there with the characters. He made us feel very, very comfortable with the characters, and I think that this is what makes the movie great.

Since it's release in January of 2003, I have heard a lot of people on here claim that this film is a terrible and boring bore. I believe that this is because of a lot of people simply having a great hatred of this film. I think that the reason why this film has such a high rating is because of the fact that you see it for the first time. I personally thought that the ending was excellent. It was one of the best things I have ever seen in my life and I am not exaggerating when I say that it was outstanding. It was a great ending and made me think back to my childhood and it's all good.

One of the best performances I have ever seen from Tom Hanks. Even his biggest fans (like myself) must admit this is one of the best movie roles he has ever done. The whole film is built around his performance and his performance alone. When the audience hears him say, "You know what they say about men who are lost in life." and "I've never felt like this before." you can't help but to be drawn into this film. It is the most memorable and stirring piece of acting I have ever seen in my life. As the movie ends, the audience is in a state of shock and awe. And when the credits roll, the audience is left feeling uplifted. The fact that the movie was released in 2005 is a testimony to the quality of the film and the performance that Tom Hanks gave. The story is well-told and kept interesting. The locations are beautiful, both in the English countryside and in the Los Angeles film world. And the script is also well-written. The performances by Tom Hanks and Michael Douglas are a match made in heaven. The only weak point is the ending. It is a bit cliched, but overall, it is a very good film.

This is a truly superb movie. It has a very understated style to it that makes it all the more chilling. The characters are mysterious and memorable, and they all have one thing in common: they all have a secret. Their secret is that they're all dead. And yet they are still able to retain some consciousness, and one of them even has the ability to communicate with the ghosts in the house. They are unable to do this because their bodies are just so damn cold, so they keep their heads buried in their hands. But that's just the beginning of the story. As the story unfolds, the mystery of the mystery deepens. The characters become more and more mysterious and their secrets more and more compelling. It's as if the story has been written by a couple of psychos who enjoy to write mysteries in the most twisted ways. It's a very cool movie. And I have a feeling that it will become a cult classic. You won't know what is going on for the first half, but then it will really kick in. It's such a weird story, and that's why I like it so much. The movie really grabs you, and then you can't get it out of your mind. The ending is also very good, and I hope the director doesn't stop here and write another mystery movie. It could be very interesting to follow. And it's not like the movie is boring. The story is really gripping. It's got a lot of things going on, and you'll be wondering how all of it all fits together. But don't worry. I'm sure there is a sequel for this movie, but it probably won't be as good as the first one. This movie is definitely worth watching. The acting is very good. It's not just a great movie, but a great movie that will leave you thinking about it for days afterwards.

Taken with the premise of a murder being the catalyst for a series of events,and one of the murder victims being the nephew of the woman in the story,the premise has a surprising ending.Taken with a sharp turn in the plot that it has a slightly chilling feeling to it. The characters are interesting and the actors playing the main characters are really good. The actors were really convincing in their roles and the story itself is a good one. I really liked this film and I think it is worth watching if you like crime thrillers.

On the surface, it seems like a simple mystery: a body is discovered in a secluded beach. The police believe it is the victim of a serial killer who is on the loose in the area. The detective in charge is a woman who is also a photographer. As she begins to research the case, she finds out that the body is not the victim of a serial killer. The killer is a woman with dark secrets. The detective realizes that the killer has also been photographed and that he is, in fact, a photographer. He then begins to work with a number of different people, including the woman he has been working with and a neighbor. This leads to many more mysteries, and the story continues to unfold. This is a very atmospheric movie. As the viewer, you are constantly aware that something is off about the story. This is a very suspenseful movie. It is not really a horror movie, it is more of a psychological thriller. The movie starts off slow, but then the story picks up and the movie gets really interesting. I really enjoyed this movie. I was not completely satisfied by the ending, but I was still very satisfied with the ending. The movie is very well acted. The actors all did a good job. The characters in the movie all had a different personality. I thought the movie was very well written, the plot was great, and the characters were very well developed. I would recommend this movie to anyone who is into psychological thrillers. I think anyone would enjoy this movie.

I don't know why I never thought of watching this film before. The acting was superb, and the story was totally original. If you are a fan of Hitchcock, you will like this film. I think I enjoyed the film more than I thought I would, because I didn't know what I was going to expect. The film is described as a psychological thriller, but it is really more of a mystery. I guess that's why it won the Grand Jury Prize at Cannes. There are twists in the story that keep you guessing. I am still not completely sure what is happening, and I have a feeling that I will never know. The story is very unusual, and I was totally engrossed by it. I have never seen anything like it, and I would recommend this film to anyone who is interested in psychological thrillers, or any film that you are not sure about until you watch it. This is one of the best films I have seen in a very long time.

I am not a horror fan, but when I heard about this film I immediately went to see it. I was not disappointed. I think this movie is a masterpiece and I think anyone who has not seen it will be very surprised. It has a great story line, fantastic acting, and a wonderful direction. This movie is more than just a horror film, it is also an exploration of the nature of love, and what it is and what it isn't. I would not say it is the best movie of all time, but it is definitely on my list as one of the best films of all time. A perfect ten.
