Academy Award® Winners Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained), Vanessa Redgrave (Julia) and Academy Award® Nominee Annette Bening (American Beauty) deliver “outstanding performances” (Oleg Ivanov, Slant Magazine) in this thrilling true story filled with twists, turns, and political turmoil. Waltz stars as Ulrich Mott, an eccentric and smooth-talking social climber who seems to have everyone in Washington, D.C. wrapped around his finger. But when his wealthy, well-connected and much older wife (Redgrave) turns up dead in their home, her daughter Amanda (Bening) suspects Ulrich may not be all that he seems as the police investigation begins to uncover a larger deception that goes far deeper than anyone ever imagined.
Writers and directors took a 20 minutes story and stretched it to 90 using deflection and timeline loops. If you blink, you’d miss a key piece that would leave you hopelessly lost in the confusion. I can see where things were trying to go. Could be a great exercise in a school for acting as great manipulation of audience and emotions. After 90 minutes, needed Tylenol to get thru the unnecessary headache that resulted. Avoid it.
I’ll never get the 3 hours of time back from this terrible movie.......oh wait it was only 90 minutes but felt like 3 hours... nothing made sense in this horrible movie
