We talk about the background of Louis Bloom and why he is the way he is and who are the real double faced people in the story. Next to that we don’t forget to use our ability to associate and find a connection to Odyssey. It is very likely that we mention some minor details about the ending and stuff that could possibly be spoiling to see the film with fresh eyes. Nothing dramatic, but we like to be clear about these kind of things.
