Storyline

Dr. Anna Fugazzi is a young, attractive psychologist with a loving and devoted (albeit freakish) boyfriend, plenty of stimulating friends, and a bright future ahead of her. But beneath her perfect life and calm exterior lies a deadly secret that she herself cannot imagine, much less confront!!! There is a delicate balance between reality and illusion, between conscious and the subconscious, and for Dr. Fugazzi, the truth lies somewhere in between the beauty of her present life and the horror of the not-too-distant past!!! Shocked by hallucinations and deadly images, tantalized by familiar, eerie voices, provoked by her deranged and knowing patients, and daily nightmares that awaken her in a strange, white room, Dr. Fugazzi takes an inhuman journey into her very psyche!!!!

Trivia

In the original shooting script, the character of "Detective Rowland" was written to be portrayed as a "thin, pale, nervous-looking, 35-year old MAN". During the film's casting process, the director October Kingsley concluded that there were just too many male characters in the film, and not enough strong female characters. Kingsley decided to offer the crucial role of "Detective Rowland" to Hollywood legend Faye Dunaway instead of casting yet another typical male in the role. Dunaway read the script and within 24-hours after reading the script, Faye Dunaway accepted the role of "Detective Rowland". See more »

Quotes

Dr. Anna Fugazzi: Do you suppose it's possible for someone to deny the truth so much so that... even when faced with the glaring light of reality, basic human consciousness ceases to exist for them?
Professor Elam: What? Why would you say such a dreadful thing?

Hope to see more from October Kinglsey
10 April 2009 | by (Copenhagen) – See all my reviews

The camera angle, the light, primarily one performer - I rather had the impression I was watching a piece of theater. If you're not attracted by the actress, if you don't enjoy watching her, it will not work for you. For me it did, moreover, it felt like I attended the rise of a great talent.

The story is about lunatics, this easily attracts my interest. On my ranking list "Shining" pins the lower end opposing the Belgian "Calvaire" which I guess is hard to beat. David Lynch was mentioned here, but that's something different, though if you can enjoy his movies you're more likely enjoy this one too, rather than if you waiting for the next "Saw" sequel.
