    Lotsa star power on display, but ultimately the whole shebang seems unnecessary. The Nick Roeg version wasn't as amped-up as what you have here, but ultimately, I think it was a lot more effective (and sincere). This remake is a perfect example of "less is more" - or vice-versa.

    4. If you take steps to murder your wife, you'd better make sure she's really dead, because if she isn't... Look out.

    5. If someone thinks they're a bird, maybe they are.

    Easily one of my favorite viewings this year. Perfectly demented.
