Storyline

An art teacher spends his nights painting. One night he hears noises in the loft over his. Investigating, he discovers an interloper, who claims he is going to rent the area despite the landlord's earlier assurances that he would not rent the area. Shortly after this incident, the landlord is found murdered. The investigation turns towards a drunken evictee who was seen arguing with the landlord. However, his unwanted neighbor appears threatening and malevolent. Plagued by nightmares, the artist also starts acting irrationally and becomes a suspect.

I was impressed by it's portrayal of a descent into insanity
23 February 2000 | by (Southampton, England) – See all my reviews

I saw this most unusual and moving film at the Raindance festival in London last year. Slow paced, yes. Boring? For me, no. A young artist, Nick Parker, (an excellent, sensitive Henry Thomas) teaches drawing in a run-down area of the Bronx. and his surroundings are depressing him to the point of nervous breakdown, or worse! A murder in his apartment affects him deeply and attempts by his sister (a well-judged performance by Teri Hatcher) to communicate with him are offset by his growing mistrust of his own senses. This film has qualities that repay the patience needed to appreciate them. The cinematography is responsible for much of the film's impact and the high level of acting all round builds the tension nicely, together with Alex Winter's splendid screenplay. I was impressed by it's intelligent and realistic portrayal of a descent into insanity.
