Movies That Trick Us

A short exploration of the recent spate of tricky films with unreliable narrators, such as The Crying Game, “The Usual Suspects, The Sixth Sense, The Others, The Game, Fight Club, and memento.” “While every film has its own objectives, I think it is fair to say that the movement on the whole is focusing on our own perceptions of reality. They are all pointing to the idea that we create our own truth.” (Dan Buck, “Movies that Trick Us,” Relevant Magazine, July 2003).
