The movie touches on issues of duality and psychology but often uses shock tactics to shake things up.
The movie may not be the second coming of "Heat" but it’s good enough to turn up the temperature to “warm.”
Almost seems too bizarre to be true, even though it is - an inadvertent success story that illustrates there’s more than one way to stardom.
Everyone will be awed by Gary Oldman’s uncanny transformation and the way he brings back to life an icon who has been dead for more than 50 years.

"Detroit" functions as much as a dramatization of things that happened as a cautionary tale of where we could be headed.
There are times when the visuals are dazzling and dizzying but there’s also a sense that we’re watching something created on a computer as opposed to a genuine bending of reality.
It’s strangely refreshing to watch a courtroom drama where theatricality doesn’t trump meticulous examination.
"Deepwater Horizon" is structured not so much as a fictionalized chronicle of actual events as it is an old-fashioned disaster movie.
The performances, Alicia Vikander’s in particular, are where "The Danish Girl" shines.
A well-acted, absorbing story that ranks high both in terms of unpredictability and all-around appeal.
