There are in this world mental institutions that are brightly lit, orderly and clean.

Get ready to be on the edge of your seat! I thought I had it figured out 3 different times, only to get it switched up on me at every assumption. Leo is a really amazing actor, and that's evidenced heavily in this film!

I loved this movie! The plot and the acting were superb. This is definitely a DVD I want to add to my collection. If you're into the psychological thrillers, this is right up your alley.

Despite being very predictable, I found this film to be very engaging and a unique entry into Martin Scorsese's filmography. At this point in his career, you would almost expect a celebrated director like him to play it safe with simple rehashes of his older films, but Scorsese seems determined to stay fresh. Ultimately, with this film he hasn't broken any new ground, but he has created an intriguing psychological thriller powered by wonderful performances and intense visual imagery.
