Carol: Oh, is that what you think love feels like?
Nancy: No. Death is like sucking pure oxygen.
Carol: And life?
Nancy: It's like being trapped inside the wrong house looking for a way out.
Carol: Well, how do you know you'll be able to breathe once you die?
Nancy: Because I'll be outside my body. I'll be floating and free.
Carol: How do you know? How do you know it won't be worse?
Nancy: I know it will be better than this.

Difficult to watch because of its subject matter, but a good film nonetheless.
7 March 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Yes, Downloading Nancy is a bit tough to watch. It's dark and is centred around the depths a human can descend to in their mind, especially when sex and sexuality is a major player.

You could call it deviant behaviour or even masochist fantasizing, this film won't answer any questions but it will display, and coldy I might add, one person's plight in navigating these murky waters. Also, what can happen when one chooses to manifest their dark desires.

I originally sought out this film because of actor Michael Nyqvist. I am basically making my way through many of the films he's been in, but Downloading Nancy doesn't feature him like I thought it would. Instead, he plays a less prominent but still visible character.

Luckily, Maria Bello and Rufus Sewell carried the movie just fine, so I had no trouble watching it.
