A pretty taut slow-boil thriller which all stems from one very poor decision made one night. Three lives come "crashing" together in a tragic way and as the lies mount so do the troubles. There are too many character questions to make this a GREAT film, but the acting is wonderful and it's well shot for this genre. Certainly an enjoyable watch.
Paint by numbers fill in the blank plot further marred by cardboard characters and flat performances. The main protagonist's lack of concern with saving his own hide and clichéd "haunted/consumed by guilt" motivations ring hollow and untrue. Too bad as the first 15 minutes or so promise so much more.
Three Worlds is an intriguing and spiraling story of three people aiming to become more and have more, creating an interesting plot that really thrives through its actors. The film is blossomed from the hit-and-run scene and continues to grow. The color scheme is something that really stayed with me, and the cinematography shows an intimate relationship with some of the characters you wouldn't expect.
"Three Worlds" gives us a taste of guilt, fear, lust, and a hunger for a richer life. From just one oversight the lives of three differing individuals spiral down through a series of lies and self interest. There's no secret to where the drama is headed, however, the wonderful acting keeps the exhausted plot alive.
Three Worlds follows three characters whose lives intertwine after a tragedy. While not a unique plot, the characters and dialogue kept the film interesting. The use of lighting really stuck out to me as I was watching the film, especially the opening scene.
