Probably don’t watch this one with your dad. There’s quite a bit of sex, but it doesn’t overshare. The gist behind most scenes is actually more disturbing than the scene itself.
I had to do a lot of reading on this one. It is based on a novel, which I think I would find a lot better. The movie leaves a lot of things unanswered and you really have to dissect it, which is actually quite difficult when you’re not ready. Having to break a movie down too much will just push people to think that the movie is stupid and then it really doesn’t get appreciated.
I could write a lot about the themes and the ideas behind the novel (because it’s actually not stupid) but I won’t. If you’re into that kind of thing I’d suggest you do your research. It’s quite interesting.
On another note, some great acting by Christian Bale as the bad guy. Especially when I’ve come to know and love him as Batman. He is also seriously attractive and must have worked out a lot before this was made. His eyes though.. scary as fuck.
