The Number 23

(USA/Germany, 2006, 101 minutes)

A happily married man is given as a birthday present a mysterious novel that seems to mirror strangely his own life, and finds himself succumbing to the same obsessions as the novel’s lead character. Trashy, good-looking paranoid thriller with a good premise and great technical credits wasted in derivative scripting and handling that is too reminiscent of previous better films.
