The truth, and the consequences, are out there

Conspiracy Theory gives slick thrillers a good name

Gibson manages to be lyrical with a limited set of tools, basically amounting to memory scraps and pop songs. With his slap-happy brand of star power, he takes viewers through the film's rough spots unscathed, and leaves them both moved and amused. He conveys Jerry's existential hell and his joy in believing that, thanks to Alice, he's still one lucky guy. In Conspiracy Theory, the truth is out there--but it's also within the heart and mind of an addled Everyman in an age of high anxiety.

Conspiracy Theory.
Mel Gibson, Julia Roberts, and Patrick Stewart. Written by Brian Helgeland. Directed by Richard Donner. Opens Friday.
