    The film has a crackling cast on offer. You have Jake Gyllenhaal, Naomi Watts and Chris Cooper leading the performances. Gyllenhaal as the young and brash guy is the perfect complement to Watts’ older but confused pothead blonde. They make a fantastic couple, almost like Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet in Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind. Despite their best efforts, the film does absolutely nothing. The final act, a desperate attempt to make a popcorn happy ending seem poignant is just disappointing. Having watched the film you desperately wonder, what the entire point was. It’s definitely not the kind of sentiment you want to end with.

  • But this visually inventive film moves rather smoothly. It also feels a bit indulgent, but the good kind – that gives us a couple of sexy sequences: including one where Davis dreams of simply walking with his headphones on in a crowded street, while the rest move backwards in time.
