This movie is the dark version of "50 First Dates" and "Groundhog Day."
I enjoyed this movie.
I knew that there was a twist.
I guessed that the twist involved the therapist.
I thought that maybe he wasn't a therapist at all - - maybe he was the attacker.
But I was wrong.
The therapist, Dr. Nash, had me wondering.
Imagine how believable or unbelievable this is . . .
(1) Dr. Nash calls Christine - - every single morning.
He obviously has to wait for the time that he knows that Ben has left for work,
so he knows that Christine will be alone (because these visits are in secret).
(2) He introduces himself over the phone (for the hundredth time)
and tells Christine to go find the camera and watch it, and that he will come to pick her up.
(3) He then gets in his car and drives to Christine's house.
We don't know how long that drive is.
(4) He picks her up and drives her somewhere far off, in the middle of nowhere.
That is a long drive.
(5) They talk.
Same conversation every morning.
Hopefully, some new conversation, making some progress.
We don't know how long this "session" is.
(6) He drives her home.
They were in the middle of nowhere, so this is a long drive.
(7) He drives from her home to his office.
We don't know how far that is.
So, this absolutely has to take up Dr. Nash's entire morning.
Then he has to face whatever patients he has for the rest of the day.
And, remember, he is working for Christine for free.
And he bought that camera for her -- that camera was not cheap.
Not to mention how much he must spend on gasoline every day for all of those long drives.
Why would he go through all of this?
What is in it for him?
And, what happens on the weekends, when Ben is home, so Dr. Nash cannot call?
And, what happens if Dr. Nash calls, and Ben might answer - - maybe Ben took a sick day or a vacation day or was running late.
What kind of a therapist goes through all of this, giving away every morning for free?
It was said that this went on for many weeks.
What kind of a therapist would work with a very sick woman, in secret?
Why would he drive her far off to the middle of nowhere?
Why couldn't he just go into her house to talk to her?
Or meet her in a public place?
Or meet her in his office?
He could keep their sessions secret without taking her off on long drives.
I also wondered - - after Dr. Nash brings Christine home, what does she do for the rest of the day, until Ben comes home from work?
