The film begins with a subway accident and the director,using the camera to direct the audiences reactions....the true meaning of pure cinema...teases with the viewer,will they show it,I hope not but still you can't keep from watching and this is mirrored in the final moments when patients at a hospital are all held spellbound by the images on the tv screen....will they show the actual images of torture and dismemberment.This film is what Robert Rodriguez and Tarantino aspire to do but don't quite get it right....Mr.Almenabar gets it right and I can't wait to see his new film,Open Your Eyes.Surprisingly,no one has attempted an American remake yet...THANK GOD!All Hollywood knows how to do is Blow Things UP!
