Identity – Movie 83 of 365

24 Mar

identityThere is a point in some movies where you just give up trying to figure out what’s going on and just enjoy the ride.  That’s what I had to accept part way through Identity.  It’s a compliment to how nicely written this thriller is.

What starts out as a “simple” story of several different strangers who end up in the same motel on a raining night soon becomes a complicated set of twist and turns; some expected, some come completely from out of left field.

The people include a family (husband,wife, child), a married couple with problems, a fading starlet and her driver, a call girl, and an officer transporting a prisoner to a different facility.  With no phone service and flooded roadways there is nothing they can do but ride out the storm.  But then people start dying.

Now the hard part finding out who is the cause.  While it seems easy and obvious at first, you find that it’s not as cut and dry as it may seem.  Heck nothing about this movie is as it seems.  And that’s why I thoroughly enjoyed it.  I like movie that you have to figure out parts but I don’t want to be so confused that I’m not enjoying the movie.  This movie balances it well, saving most of the really confusing stuff until the last 20 or so minutes.  Which by then enough pieces of the puzzle have been shown that it’s understandable.

It’s really hard to explain this without giving away the movie so let’s just say if you like mysteries and slightly mind-binding thrillers you should give this one a look.
