It is very difficult to write this review without giving spoilers but I really enjoyed this movie. It is one of those types where you are not sure what is real and want is in Tom Cruise's mind.

Cruise is in some type of correctional facility telling his story to Kurt Russell who appears to be a psychiatrist for his defense in a crime. Cruise is wearing a mask and you suspect that he may be somehow disfigured under it. Cruise tells how he was the major shareholder of a corporation and he had his disagreements with the board.

Diaz and Cruz are both gorgeous and the movie held me from start to finish!
