The Nines

Kinda like Donnie Darko, but nothing like it. This is the best way I can describe The Nines, a movie that is not your everyday movie.
Staring Ryan Reynolds, The Nines is a movie divided in three parts, each one telling a short story about an actor, a TV show producer, and a videogame designer. The thing is, as one quickly find out, all three stories are connected in a most intriguing but very clever way, and all of them have Reynolds character at the center playing different personas, although really, they are all the same.
Confusing? Yes, The Nines constantly puts us, the viewer, asking to ourselves “What?! What does this all mean?! Huh?!”, but never with cheap tricks or nonsense scenes. It is all perfectly well though out, and the script is both ingeniously original and funny at the same time, and although this is definitely a very intelligent movie (if one can actually call that to a movie, which I don't think we can or should), it is never, and never tries to be pretentious in any way. It tackles several genres, including comedy, drama and suspense, but ultimately, I would say this is simply a very original thriller, with no simplicity attached to it, that tries to answer the simple meanings of life.
Just like a promotional tag line of the movie says, “The Nines is like a riddle where the answer is the question: ‘How does it all add up?’” And you’ll have to see it to find out.
