Unusual Suspects. Sit in the dark but the spark of the light of the screen.

Will they be mean?

All so Highly Suspect.  Why doooooo they ramble on?

This review is Highly Suspect. But yooooou should listen on.

 

Rookie filmmaker Ned Benson takes a very ambitious, Peter Jackson-y approach to his first movie. He split one romantic drama into three separate films. The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby tells the story of a couple’s emotionally devastating breakup from each of their individual perspectives, accounting for two of the movie versions, with an additional installment blending the two.

And if you like multiple perspectives, you’ve come to the right movie review! The Unusual Suspects (in this case Brian, Beau, Elliott, and Will) open their hearts and pour their syrupy sentiments (good and bad) all over the “Them” cut of this roman-trifecta. We promise that, despite the title, we only make a few Beatles jokes.

Enjoy.
