Storyline

Joe is a psychiatrist who puts a hidden camera behind his couch, facing a wall sized mirror in order to document a number of women who come and go. Obsessed with a former lover, Joe intends to perform and record an "experiment in contemporary sexual aberration." In the process, Joe documents his own mental breakdown as well as a number of sexually volatile encounters with the women who come to see him. Written by alfiehitchie

This is the sort of cinematic stunt that has to be seen to be believed!
28 November 1999 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

Rip Torn is a psychiatrist who places a hidden camera on a shelf across from his sofa. There's a wall sized mirror behind the sofa which is how we see the rest of the place. Then we watch as various women come and go, including one who has a cleavage full of cigarette burns. The idea is that he is having a breakdown and documenting it as well as documenting these women who also happen to be patients.

But no amount of verbiage can describe this movie. It truly has to be seen to be believed. With such first rate actors as Torn, Kirkland and Lindfors, the picture is never actually excruciating because it's quite something to watch them go through their paces.

So if you are ever given the chance to see "Coming Apart," my advice is don't miss it. Feature length stunts like this are, for better or worse, few and far between.
