See all my film reviews here.
I am not sure how this truly excellent English language film, Deception (2013) escaped my attention but it is a monumentally brilliant film. I nearly passed this film over but was drawn to it because Geoffrey Rush plays the lead character.
Deception’s plot is fast moving, exciting, gripping, entertaining and delightfully complex. This is a film with lots of different interwoven threads running through it from start to finish. Geoffrey Rush gives a towering performance in this film which keeps you guessing from start to finish – and then afterwards! Jim Sturgess also deserves a special mention as the crafty techy bloke – he’s a little bit like ‘Q’ in the James Bond movies.
The photography, sound, sets and music give this film a great deal of depth and atmosphere.
To paraphrase Winston Churchill, this film is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma. It is a multi-dimensional ‘who done it’ with many twists and turns.
This is another wonderful film and I give it the PhotoNomad 10/10 award + two ticks and a star!
