Welcome: See no Evil
mausar from Italy
10 August 2009
This short and entertaining horror movie is a real rare jewel. You
should have seen it on YouTube only in September 2007, when it was
presented in Reel Moments contest. It's the debut of Kirsten Dunst as
director, starring Winona Ryder. This work is not perfect, of course.
The film contains some disappointing flaws, due to its short format.
Its sudden ending doesn't let us to understand the dynamics of the
characters, their psychology and the motivations which let Winona Ryder
to change completely her behaviour (I don't want to add spoilers
can't explain other details!). But during the movie, you could be
attracted by the rare atmosphere created by the dark scenes, the sounds
of a semi-empty house (and no music at all), the camera which follows
every character from a mysterious point of view. Kirsten Dunst is
trying to recreate a suspense in which you see nothing but you fear to
see something. And she reaches her scope perfectly, until the end of
the short. Contrary to many other horror movies, this one reflects a
real optimistic sense of life: respect and friendship are always
possible, the unknown must not be feared. In this Dunst's movie, at
least, we see no Evil.
