Movie: The Number 23

This is a film noire/psychological thriller from Joel Schumacher starring Jim Carrey, Virginia Madsen. In many ways the camera work and the narrator's style was reminiscent of Sin City. The pet detective is back as an animal control officer obsessing over the number 23 after reading a mysterious manuscript from a mysterious author. Madsen plays the devoted housewife who will stand by her husband, no matter what,. Many say that the end was unpredictable but that is not true if you've seen Secret Window. Still the movie is worth watching. The end if not predictable is too far fetched. The takeaway line goes something like this:

'Time is just a counting system, numbers with meaning attached to them.'

Rajiv's verdict: Go ahead and rent it!
