Storyline

Tom doesn't usually do too well when his blood needs to be taken. This time it isn't different. He fainted and fell with his head on the floor. It wasn't too bad, he only was a little bit dizzy and went to home soon. The next day, however, trouble begins when Tom enters a tunnel in his car. Suddenly he gets a blackout. The blackouts continue, day after day, examination after examination. When he browses the internet, he learns a new phrase: panic attack. He has all the symptoms. This doesn't really help him though. The trouble only gets worse. Written by Arnoud Tiele (zelva@tiele.nl)

Quotes

Thomas Andrew Putnam: September 11th happens and I'm in absolutely no condition to deal with it. I wake my wife up in the middle of the night. I smell poison gas. I hear an airplane crashing. There's someone speaking Arabic in our backyard. I start buying guns. I buy a gas mask, I buy a hasmat suit. I'm in the process of buying a geiger counter, when our Mastercard bill arrives... I'm in trouble.

Hilarious and cathartic
16 December 2003 | by (Burbank, CA, USA) – See all my reviews

In Tom Hits His Head, well, Tom hits his head. And the insanity that follows is what the director, Tom, insists is an autobiographical account of a six-month bout with panic attacks. The movie is hilarious, escalating from simple depression to blackouts to binge spending to an encounter with Satan in the bathroom. One can imagine that it was a lot less amusing when it was really happening, which makes a great case for independent film as a means of cathartic therapy. After the screening, the director joked that he had gotten tired of people asking him how he's been doing since his accident, so now he just hands them a tape.
