If There Is Only One Movie You Miss This Year...
7 September 2002 | by (NYC, USA) – See all my reviews

I thought the first 15 minutes of this mind-numbing psychiatric ward "torture de force" was the worse thing in the film... until the movie continued. By the middle of the film, the writer and the director hit rock bottom. But to my amazement, the crew took out pick-axes and shovels to reach new depths.

The basic plot revolves around an alcoholic psychiatrist obsessed with his first wife's death. The poor soul is soon institutionalized, by his best friend and second wife, in some sort of experimental mental institution run by the medically curious. It is here that our protagonist realizes the hidden truths... or does he?

The movie tries to be an intense psychological thriller with surprising plot twists. Instead, the film is a droning exploration of lackluster montages with as many surprises as your granny's navy bean soup!

Save your four dollar rental fee for a Keanu Reeves movie, at least you know what to expect. And if this gem happens to be on cable... cancel your subscription immediately.
