One of my all-time favourites, a very "grey" movie... It brings out the darker side of love but not in any way that (as far as I know) has already been done. At the end of the movie, there are no clear cut black-and-whites, you don't know whom to love and whom to hate!

I don't exactly know how to feel about this movie. Some days I love it, some days I simply hate it. Don't get me wrong--Josh Hartnett is nice to look at any day of the week but I think the main problem about this movie is that it doesn't know how to keep its focus. But I'm happy to say that one thing never changes: I will always believe that Coldplay's "The Scientist" in the final scene was absolute brilliance.

I'm not quite sure how to feel about this movies. As I was watching it I was thinking hurry up and get to the end already, but I couldn't fast forward it and I couldn't turn it off. I think it showed that obsessive side of normal people that no one likes to think about. I couldn't remember ever hearing anything about this movie when it came out, until that part in the last 10 minutes when they were in the restaurant and Alex said "Love makes you do crazy things." It was that weird accent on the word "crazy"! I was like OMG, I remember that weird accent! But irrelevant. The movie was okay as a whole. A little dark, and a little creepy. You kind of never knew what was going on. If that was what the director was going for then he definitely succeeded.

This movie set across a different vibe in it's trailers than what the movie actually is. I don't quite remember the exact thoughts I had when I first saw the trailers back in '04; but it didn't look like anything new or special that I wanted to see. Basically, it looked like a movie like Fatal Attraction or Single White Female; but with a younger, more modern cast.
I was wrong!
After months, if not years of a friend having this flick as one of his all-time favorites I decided to buy it at a 20/20 Video store for $5.
By the final act of the movie I was sitting on the arm of the couch in my apartment, yelling at the television because of everything that was going on.
It's a movie of lost love, the search for love and the steps people take to find it, take it, have it, …
