Red Lights (2012)
Genre: Drama, Mystery, Thriller
I think this is one of those marmite film where some will find this incredibly boring or will truly love this film (like me 😀 ) . The acting within this film is sublime; Cillian Murphy, Robert De Niro and Sigourney Weaver 🙂 . The narrative is constructed well and keeps you entertained. The film itself is slow to build and sections between the “action” might make you less than captivated but I found the “story” is good enough to support those gaps 😛 . I liked the back story to Margaret Matheson and I liked the scene when they are investigating Silver (the psychic tests). The Tom Buckley’s obsession is quite good and the hints to the supernatural works well (though I would have liked more) with the seriousness of the real world. The twist at the end of the film may be sudden but I quite liked it and it saved the film for me 🙂 . This movie has plenty of suspense, drama and is one of the best film of the thriller genre. So if you want to watch a original narrative about people trying to find fake psychics with excellent actors? Then this is for you 😛 . Enjoy 🙂
I give this film 4.5 Stars out of 5!
