The blurb basically ruins the film...this is a [dowdy, as in the dowdiest] modern-day Psycho...!
Where Psycho - in it's time - delivered a real shocker of a climax. Kaleidoscope is a mind-boggling trek through a shattered timeline...it's all over the place! You never know where you are from one minute to the next.
As much as we love Toby Jones and Anne Reid...you will feel nothing for their on-screen personas. By the end...well, we all know the end of Psycho...this 'end' was a major anti-climax.
Kaleidoscope is a taut, psychological thriller that explores the inescapability of a destructive relationship between a middle-aged man and his mother. At the heart of this modern day 'Psycho' are some unsettling questions: Can we ever escape the role in which we are cast by our early circumstances? Must a perpetrator first be a victim?
