Identity (2003)



Reviews and Comments

Identity is an excellent murder mystery that's so devious that conventional surprise endings aren't enough for it: the surprises in this movie involve not just who the characters are and what happens but what kind of a movie it is. Director James Mangold, whose filmography never hinted at a forthcoming work like this, keeps the atmosphere thick and the tension cranked. Stand-out performances from John Cusack and especially Amanda Peet add to the fun.
