Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film Three Identical Strangers

It's an incredible story that raises thought-provoking questions about the ethical nature of psychological studies and its preconceived notions of "greater good." It's hard to look at the subject of nature vs. nurture the same way ever again. That said, TIS is not a great film. It's excessively manipulative (in all the wrong places), doesn't dig deep enough and its structure takes away the pleasure of discovery.
