Is the patient insane or is the system?
11 November 2002 | by (Palm Desert, CA) – See all my reviews

AN ABSOLUTELY incredible film, which makes a complex story fascinating and thoroughly understandable. The director-writer, Alec Carlin, in his first stint as director, effortlessly moves from a hospital setting to flashbacks of the patient's life to imagined tango scenes from the patient's novel--each switch of scene filmed with different colors, cameras and techniques so the audience is never once confused. Although a tad long (necessitated by the analysis of the patient), this movie boasts flawless casting, acting worthy of award nominations and a story that combines mystery with romance. Morris Monk, as Justin Kirk, the novelist-patient, successfully combines threat with innocence. Catherine Kellner, as Dr. Patricia Farrow, the shrink, offers youthful enthusiasm that gradually turns to horror. Claudia Mason, as Raven, the dancer-neighbor, makes the tango the seductive dance it is, while Ely Pouget is perfect as Justin's long-missing mother. Highly recommended. Now why doesn't this memorable film have a distributor?
