The film contains 16 hidden messages that hold clues to the characters’ secrets. Eight are fairly easy requiring only a close eye. Six are moderately difficult using various encryption methods. Two are extremely difficult requiring a genius mind to decrypt. Delicious textures—herringbone fabric and washed-out wood—mixed with grainy whisps of wrapping light, I get lost in the motion of the movie and at times drop out of the storyline. Don’t take that the wrong way, it’s not that the story doesn’t work for it, trying to undress the process is always something I let get in the way of a plot line, leaving me often lost and somewhat uncertain at the end of a lot of movies.
