Regression 2015

     The setting of this story is in Minnesota of 1990.  Detective Bruce Kenner is investigating the case of 17-year-old Angela Gray.  She has made accusations against her father, she has left the family home and she is living in a local church.  Dr. Kenneth Raines is a psychologist and he is brought in to talk to Angela’s father John Gray. 
     There are a lot of times when there is heavy rain in this film.  There is also a lot of darkness and murkiness too.  Many times this film seems ridiculous and the ending is not satisfying either.  I wanted to ask someone if I could have 106 minutes back of my life that I spent watching this film.  2* (I didn't like this movie)

106 min, Crime directed by Alejandro Amenabar with Ethan Hawke, Emma Watson, David Thewlis, Lothaire Bluteau, Dale Kickey, David Dencik, Devon Bostick, Aaron Ashmore, Peter MacNeill, Adam Butcher, Jacob Neayem, Aaron Abrams.

Note:  Imdb 5.7 out of 10, 15% critic 22% audience on Rotten Tomatoes, Amazon 3.1* out of 5* with 864 reviews.
Special Note:  Filmed in Mississauga, Toronto, Oakville, Hamilton, Tottenham, Newmarket, Pinewood Toronto Studios, Ontario Canada and Spain.  David Thewlis was also in the Harry Potter series with Emma Watson.  Regression is a technique combined with hypnosis to help individuals remember things they have done in the past.
