Storyline

In the center of a monotonous suburban existence, Sarah lives silently and in subservience to her icy husband Patrick. They have been together far too long, and Patrick's affections for his wife have all but vanished. Instead, his sexual urges are tempting him to lust after their own son. Realizing how far gone her husband is, Sarah undertakes drastic, shockingly sickening measures to salvage some sense of her life and purge her years of festering resentment. Written by Johnny Camden

The most shocking thing about Cutting Moments is the acting.
19 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

Cutting Moments is a short film of just over 20 minutes about a married couple who have grown distant from one another due to the husband's growing sexual urges towards their son (this is hinted at, but obvious nevertheless).

Although the result of the wife's desperate attempt to win back the attention of her husband is pretty damn nasty, this film is overrated in relation to how disturbing it is, in my humble opinion. It was simply unremarkable, and that's about all I can think to say about it. It's one of those films that you really have to watch and judge for yourself, because people's opinions seem to be fairly divided on it.
