Doom House is one of those films that you watch and stare at in awe. It's frank look at the human condition through the eyes of what appears to be just an ordinary average guy, who as the film progresses turns out to be the equivalent of a kind of sublime mid-western Zen Master who's travels serve to teach him not only about the House and it's importance to him, but to all of humanity.
The film is Richard Kyanka's debut on DVD, though he has produced some quality digital media, most notably the interactive experience titled "Dance Dance Karnov" chronicling one Italian sous chef's quest for self discovery while shopping for hats.
Like "Karnov", Doom House is a philosophical masterpiece, challenging one's perception of truth at the most fundamental level. Does Kant actually bring together the whole of western philosophical thought? Doom House won't tell you, but it will tell you why it doesn't matter and make you wonder if Kant actually meant all those things he wrote about morality.
Definitely a film to watch for any fan of thought provoking cinema.
