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 stars Geoffrey Rush, Jim Sturgess, Sylvia Hoeks and Donald Sutherland.
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!
