A movie that keeps you guessing to the end and then — miraculously — makes the guessing pay off.

Incredible use of atmosphere, production design. Excellent performances by DiCaprio, Ruffalo, Kingsley, etc.

The use of deliberate continuity errors to reflect Teddy’s state of mind is a nice little touch. Always noticing new things on rewatch.
