Three Identical Strangers Movie Review

Identity Crisis

All I knew, or thought I knew, about "Three Identical Strangers" was that it was a documentary about triplets who were unaware of the fact that they had any identical brothers. Ten minutes into it, I remembered that it had been a big news item years earlier. However, what I previously knew covered only a fraction of the entire story.

For most of the first hour, this is a joy-fest, with three identical brothers that were separated at birth and adopted out to three different families, none of whom knew that they were getting one out of three triplets.

Upon finding their brothers, they are all deliriously happy about it and eventually move in together and become mini-celebrities in New York City, appearing on lots of television shows and then opening a restaurant called "Triplets". The restaurant was an enormous success, bring in a million dollars in its first year. Soon afterwards, the triplets disappeared from the public eye.

The rest of "Three Identical Strangers" examines how they were separated at birth and adopted to three different families, and the impact and toll it eventually took on all concerned. It is no longer a joy-fest. It's an examination of something incredibly nefarious. To further explain the details of it, would ruin your experience seeing it, and it is a story definitely worth exploring.

I will tell you a few things that won't ruin it for you but might make you more curious. All of the triplets were placed by the same adoption agency. One ended up with a fairly rich family, another with a middle class family, and the third with a blue-collar family. All were placed with families that had older adopted sisters of the same age. What a set of odd coincidences.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review

Though similar to the OnePlus 6T the Oppo RX17 Pro is very different thanks to the software. Here’s our full review
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
The RX17 Pro is a great looking phone with good performance and a lush display. But with a Snapdragon 710 rather than the better 845 it’s just impossible not to compare it to the OnePlus 6T which looks the same, has better software for the western market and, importantly, costs less.
If you like the look of Oppo’s interface though then there’s a lot to like. The two colour options are premium as is the build quality and the cameras are above average if not great.

2019 Lincoln Continental Review

If you’re tired of the same old luxury options, the 2019 Lincoln Continental provides a refreshingly retro-cool alternative.
The 2019 Lincoln Continental is a big, luxurious American sedan at a time when Americans are hardly buying big, luxurious American sedans anymore. Regardless, it’s a throwback ride with plenty of character, great value, lots of power, and a classic nameplate. We give it 7.5 out of 10 overall.
Among European and Japanese rivals with established models – S-Class, 7 Series, LS – this Lincoln stands out for several reasons, chief among them its nameplate. With the Continental, Lincoln has one of the most storied American car names.
