The Big Empty (2003)

At first, The Big Empty seems to be a sad drama. After a few minutes it appears to be a thriller. Then it turns into a mystery, and suddenly it's a sci-fi.

Funny thing is, it actually handles all genres pretty well.

Jon Favreau shows that he is a better actor than director, but that's not saying much. Even though he's not the lead, Sean Bean is the real star of this film.

The plot twists and twirls and makes less and less sense as it toils along, but there's hints. You might have to see it more than once, though...
