The Nines

Genre: Mystery and Thriller, Horror; Starring: Hope Davis, Ryan Reynolds, Melissa McCarthy; Director: John August; Author: John August; Release Date Limited: 08/31/2007; Runtime (in minutes): 99; MPAA Rating: R; Distributor: New Market Films

Ryan Reynolds proves an incisive actor in this weirdly engrossing, three-part head-scratcher of a metaphysical puzzle movie. In the best episode, he plays a frazzled writer-producer out to put a new series on the air. The other segments aren’t as fully realized, but you get caught up in the way they echo, mirror, and spill over into one another.
