Crazy Love - Bliss (2021) - Review

Bliss is a mind-bending love story following Greg (Owen Wilson) who, after recently being divorced and then fired, meets the mysterious Isabel (Salma Hayek), a woman living on the streets and convinced that the polluted, broken world around them is just a computer simulation. Doubtful at first, Greg eventually discovers there may be some truth to Isabel's wild conspiracy.

How to escape from a world that is beating you down? Bliss. If you ever wanted to be in the mind of someone on the edge, trying to escape themselves and get to a place where they can be happy this movie comes close. It jumps back and forth between the depths of despair and the height of human achievement and a Utopia we would all love to live in. The trick is trying to figure out which one is real and which is fake? This story is clever in how it teases you with the truth and hints at what could be. I enjoyed the ride even though some of the story had holes. Owen Wilson does a good job slowly losing his mind, and trying to cling to memories. Salma Hayek fits the crazed doctor/homeless lady well but her most believable scene in the movie, is one that seemed improved. Let me know if you can spot the scene I mean. Its a mind altering love story that will leave you wondering at the end. When you are looking for something to watch it will hold your attention.

Ranking 6.5/10
