Movie Review: Stay

I must say that this movie requires people that are a bit more with it than I am. Don’t get me wrong, it was a tremendously great movie but like the more artsy thrillers, there’s so much symbolism that it requires you to think.
Ewan McGregor and Ryan Gosling’s performance were superb. McGregor is the young psychologist that is trying to figure out a suicidal patient (Gosling) that apparently can predict the future. As he gets wrapped up in trying to understand why the patient feels and sees these things, there are seemingly role reversals and he’s torn from psychosis versus reality.
Well, at least from my point of view.
I think.


This movie reminds me a lot of Memento [affiliate]. In the same fashion of psychological thriller, you have to think it through and watch it again and again to figure out bits and pieces that you missed in the previous viewing.
Stay [affiliate] is one of those types of movies. If you’re looking for one of those films that tries the mind some and makes you wonder what exactly is going on, then this film is for you. Otherwise, go find an action flick. It’s also no wonder why it got mixed reviews since it is one that requires someone to be on a totally different mindset to appreciate the film.
