THE NUMBER 23

I’m a sucker for paranoid/conspiracy thrillers. Theories about the ubiquity of the number 23 are not new.  I first came across the phenomenon when Robert Anton Wilson delved into it back in 1977 (the article is reprinted here: http://tinyurl.com/2m4xy5 and worth reading).  The first half of the film is slow but builds in creepiness as 23 keeps cropping up in the protagonist’s past and present life.  I thought it might take a supernatural turn (after all, 2 divided by 3 is 666…), but it didn’t.  Not a bad way to kill 96 minutes, but 23 wasn’t quite as integral to the plot as it seemed.
