Arthur Bretnik is a mentally unstable conspiracy theorist and private eye with a traumatic past. After being hired to investigate a possible murder cover up in the small town of Wander, Arthur is plunged into a world of lies and deceit, as he quickly suspects the murder may be part of the same ‘conspiracy cover up’ that caused the death of his daughter. Increasingly paranoid, Arthur’s sanity is tested as he attempts to filter fact from fiction and solve the case, all the while questioning if he is a pawn in a much bigger game.

Best Review:

2020 must not be the best year to release a movie about a conspiracy theorist who goes on a journey into the heart of America to test his fabrications. But the fact remains that it was in the midst of a pandemic that Wander was released: a project that relies on dark secrets in the United States, which on the one hand resembles detective fiction and on the other a madcap paranoid thriller. Sounds good, gives plenty of room for character research, except that the creators didn’t understand what exactly they were going to do with this kind of atmosphere: after all, “Wonders” lacks the interesting personalities, measured narrative and overpowering hysterical delirium that is an indispensable attribute of thrillers of this kind. The material from which “Wonder” is woven seems more suited to the literary realm than to the movie.

Arthur, a former cop, can’t get over the death of his daughter in a car accident. He spends his free time either caring for his wife, who fell into a coma after that accident, or studying all sorts of unexplained cases. The thing is, Arthur, along with his friend Jimmy, hosts a podcast about government conspiracies. Taking a call from a terrified listener, Arthur takes on the daunting task of getting to the truth about a girl’s death in the small town of Wonder, believing that the authorities are hiding the truth.

The hero’s world is a world of mental illness. Arthur lives in a trailer in the middle of nowhere, makes his living as a private investigator, but doesn’t spend much money. Quite quickly, the protagonist connects the death of the girl in Wonders with his last case as a policeman. Such revelations drive Arthur to extremes. The narrative is implemented precisely as Arthur’s investigation, one might say in first person: we are constantly following him: here he enters the morgue, and here he sneaks around the junkyard looking for information, and then he interviews witnesses. The structure is familiar and repeats the formula of any detective.

Revealing plot details and spoilers would definitely ruin the movie, so you could say that spiritually, “Wonder” resembles some weak series of “The X-Files” and “The Parallax Conspiracy” by Pakula, but on a much smaller scale. Because of their desire to show the unvarnished American wilderness and rotten “one-story America,” the creators came up with a nervous atmosphere, but only quite raw. Eckhart’s character is sort of an “unreliable narrator,” but, again, it is in the Wanderer format that this does not work. The lack of finesse makes the many references to contemporary political phenomena (migration, border control) relevant to Americans and their realities look like a set of unnecessary insertions.

In his role, Eckhart tries to embody a character who has so many contradictory qualities that an actor with a career in the mainstream just can’t handle it. Eckhart looks more like a shaggy parody version of Guy Pearce’s character from “Remember,” except that Wander’s script is much worse than Nolan’s. Tommy Lee Jones plays Eckhart’s partner: a combination of his own character from “Under Siege” and Hunter S. Thompson. He plays, I must say, better than the movie deserves. Heather Graham, Catherine Winnick and Raymond “Tuco Salamanca” Cruz also made an appearance, except that the acting of all three is gray, as, indeed, are their characters.

The unconventional thriller comes off as surprisingly unspecific. It is not helped by the presence of Aaron Eckhart, who did not seem to take his character seriously, nor by the atmosphere of the American backwater. “Wonder” deliberately uses plot holes, omitting important events and then explaining them later – a technique not bad for creating a sense of confusion in the viewer, only in the context of the film’s events it generates more irritation and confusion. Meanwhile, in terms of events, little happens in “Wanderer”: the script concentrates more on questions of the protagonist’s mental state, which leads to the dissolution of subtle facets of the story, including how one struggles with depression from loss or addiction to drugs. The sluggish “Wonder” simply lacks humanity and ingenuity: astonishingly, the film’s 26 (!) producers failed to shake up the narrative in any way.
