Adoration, despite a family resemblance to some of his finest work ("The Sweet Hereafter," "Ararat"), is Egoyan at his worst. The movie is slow and airless, with a script so weak one wonders why Egoyan bothered to film it. show more
Adoration, Egoyan's most affecting film since "The Sweet Hereafter." show more
Shot on beautifully utilized film but employing images vividly from the Internet and mobile phones, it's an examination of the power that false ideas may have on people's imagination and beliefs when they are repeated over and over. show more

Beautifully haunting, why why why, are we the way we are, it takes a serious look at social opinions, religions, what is right or wrong, leaving the viewer with some soul searching to do. Not only was it thought provoking, it was lovely cinematography that went from in your face with online video chat, to soft emotional flash backs. ArsinÃ©e Khanjian keep pushing and pushing your buttons but with such intrigue, you wanted her to push you to the edge. Scott Speedman is so easy on the eyes even as a down and out tow-truck drive his eyes invite you in, while his voice tells you stay out, stay back, donât. To navigate between these to forces is Devon Bostick who does a stellar job as a high school teenager just trying to find his identity (family) by putting together the piece of his parents past and his now, to create a picture he never could have imaged. It is a must for any Indy fan or art film lover, I wouldn't take some one that needs explosions or the typical Hollywood fanfare this is not that film. Those who like to think and watch an amazing story are in for a treat.
