fascinating exploration
29 March 2004 | by (Mississippi,United States) – See all my reviews

This film truly fascinated me. It shows Jackson's deterioration from being a normal guy into a mentally unstable schizophrenic. It starts kind of quietly..almost an annoyance. He questions a co worker about moving things in his desk. This is coupled with the fact that he has knowledge that his girlfriend's nephew is an expert 12 year old hacker. Jackson is a critic who does reviews for certain websites. This schism of images from a website sets off ideas that his girlfriend's nephew is sending him subliminal messages. He slowly starts to become paranoid thinking people are messing with his well being. Then to put the final nail into his fragile mental state,Jackson sees a commercial for this perfume called "Revolution #9." He begins to believe this commercial is behind this whole plan to run him into oblivion sort of. His mind becomes so convoluted with paranoia that he slowly becomes incoherent and obsessive. He rambles on about industry's advances and how they will truly demoralize him. His girlfriend holds on to the person she once fell in love with despite her family and friends insistance on leaving Jackson. She tries to get him psychological help,but he believes they are part of the overall plan,too. He sets up a meeting with the commercial director of the perfume to understand the ultimate evil corporate plan which really doesn't exist except in Jackson's mind. I understand that some people may not be able to last through the film. It is surrealistic and different..a lot of camera angles in twisted contortions,hand held movements,some digital to create some grittiness,and a lot of quick cuts and fast editting..even closeups of different objects. All of this is to create a sad universe that revolves around Jackson's mental decline. I thought the film was outstanding and gripping. The acting from unknowns was quite good. The late Spalding Gray being in it does add an allure,but the film is compelling on it's own. ****1/2/*****
