I'm embarrassed that I started watching this. The idea of the author who becomes the pawn in someone else's "script" is intriguing, but the delivery is so disjointed, so wooden, so utterly paceless, it's as if someone slapped it together not realizing it was going to be an actual film. Don't waste your time.
The Nines is kind of pretentious, and it's also a bit of a rip-off of Donnie Darko and various Charlie Kaufman movies, (and it isn't as good as those movies either), but I still think it's got enough interesting ideas going for it to give it a mild recommendation.
Takes the concept of having an avatar and leading a ‘double life’ to a whole new level. This three-part philosophical, meta-physical feature may be flawed but it will resonate on the mind and emotion.
