There are very few movies out there that look deep into the dark side of relationships like Closer does. This particular story takes four talented actors and actresses and forces them into relationships with each other. The writers allow for everything to play out on their own, thanks to lots of mind games and manipulation, rather than force feed us a prototypical romance movie. Closer allows these four to be themselves, to fall in love for romance or lust, while figuring out what is truly best for them. I don’t think this film would be on anyone’s radar and wouldn’t be the movie you remember when thinking of the lead cast. There is just something about this disturbing movie that leaves you to wonder what will happen with anticipation until the finale. People often think that relationships are easy with the right person, but sometimes they can be like walking across a mind field with the wrong ones.
