Storyline

PRAXIS peels away the layers of narrative even as Brian, the film's axis, struggles to create his true self. Brian, a writer on the verge of a breakdown, is aided by Joe and an Elusive Woman as he sifts through the fragments of his persona to discover his true core. Fighting against fear and the indifference of society - aptly symbolized by the medical establishment - his quest reflects the classical mythos of Proteus and the human search for meaning in the universe. Written by Kyle Northam

Don't be too harsh...
22 June 2012 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

Ah, well—this is probably written in reaction to some of the harsh reviews; they're fully justified—but this film deserves some defense. True, it's long, repetitive and lacks real focus—lacks a real narrative, actually. OK, dabbling with esthetics without mastering everything. OK, a number of gimmicks and silly bits.

But it's emotionally forceful; the portrayal of depression and one's relation to pills is quietly poignant. Esthetically, it has moments of real beauty and quiet eroticism/tenderness. Tom Macy transcends his handsomeness with truly convincing acting—doesn't seem to me to be "lost at sea" doing things at random.

So, not a complete failure; not just another arty, pretentious, uneducated ego trip or film school spawn. Deserves watching and appreciation.
