Great storyline. I never expected the movie to end as it did... what a twist. Grand performances from Michael Douglas, Deborah Kara Unger and the late, James Rebhorn.

I returned this last week in the outside dropbox. Please let me know if it did not get scanned in for some reason.

The movie is slick and entertaining and in the vein of The Truman Show and EdTV .... they're watching me. Is this modern day paranoia?! Shades of Edward Snowden! Check out the inspiration for these "other people are watching/controlling my life" flicks.... the episode "Special Service" from about 1989 The Twilight Zone tv show. It's on youtube. Pretty neat.
yikes... did I just see a camera?

This is one of those films that like a really good single malt sneaks up on you as you take it in and then takes you on an incredible roller coaster ride as if you had drank too much, too fast.
