Wicker Park: Wicked Movie
21 January 2009 | by suzie_meijerSee all my reviews

I didn't have any expectations about this movie before it started. In the beginning it seemed like an ordinary movie to me, a little boring even. Just another love story. But then I got confused because of the scenes following each other like they were put in a random order. After about an hour and a half I regained my grip on the story. That was the moment I started liking the movie, because (I assumed) I understood and wanted it to end happily.

This movie reminded me of Hitchcock's "Vertigo", because of the confusing sequence of scenes. Also "He Loves Me... He Loves Me Not" popped into my head, when after the first hour and a half things were clarified by, paradoxically, putting scenes even more out of chronological order. The last movie I had to think of was "Vanilla Sky", with its similar confusion about two different girls.

In my opinion, the confusion and clarifying of the narrative makes this a surreal but satisfying movie. 8 out of 10.
