“Life Itself” Movie (2018), On Amazon Prime — Cerebral, Complicated, Yet Mesmerizingly Compelling.
This is the polar opposite of a mindless flick. It is not a movie that you should watch if you are not going to concentrate on it. Very clever and complex plot, some very profound dialogue sprinkled with brilliant humor. Keeps you guessing and intrigued.
I was not sure what to expect and what I got was nothing like what I would have ever expected. It was, in the end, awfully rewarding. Three very separate, but interwoven stories. How it all comes together is pretty amazing.
So, if you want a movie that will entertain through its cleverness this is for you. Pay close attention. Because, quite literally, ‘BANG’ — it is not what you expect.
Highly recommended, albeit with the caveat that this not going to be mindless flick. Even if you try switching off it will bring you rushing back … with a BANG!
