"Garden State" meets "Trainspotting"
28 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think that is a more accurate summary because, even though "Girl, Interrupted does deal with someone who is institutionalized, "Bondage" has nothing in common with the style or feeling of that film. It has more of a pace and an edge like "Trainspotting" in my opinion.

This movie is so not the kind of thing you would see coming from a major studio. It isn't lame or predictable and it doesn't talk down to it's audience. This reminds me more of the kinds of stories that were being made into movies like in the late sixties and early seventies. I guess what I'm saying is it has like more of a soul.

Also the guy who wrote it and directed it and raised all the money to make it also lived it. And that has a power to it all its own.

This movie is totally original, and for that reason I think a lot of cynical types won't get it at all. I just know that the packed house at the premiere was filled with people who did get it. They loved the movie probably for the same reasons I do - I could relate.

I've never been through the experiences that the protagonist Charlie Edwards has, but I have certainly felt trapped and like my life was no longer my own. I think we all have and in the end I think that is why "Bondage" succeeeds.
