During a Q&A at the Abu Dhabi Film Festival, the screenwriter (Dodd) revealed that he started writing the script as a "free-writing" experiment with no plan, no outline, and no idea of what was going to happen. On page one, when he realized that he didn't even know the identity of the main character, he put that idea into the script, too. The writer also said that the story, for him, was a metaphor for trying to get a movie made. "I would not, could not, give up," he said. See more »

Right. First of all I need to express my disappointment. I was really looking forward to seeing this movie for quite some time now. Ever since I saw the trailer, from which it looked really attractive. It looked like it was going to be an interesting, psychedelic story, with twists and tension. ESPECIALLY due to the fact that ADRIEN BRODY is there! Because after seeing ''The Jacket'', in which Adrien Brody also starred, I was left stunned. So you can imagine the gripping excitement that came to me about half a year ago before the release of ''Wrecked'' when I found out that a movie like this would come out! But everyone, who has high hopes for this film because of the same, or at least a similar reason, can give up right now. This movie will definitely NOT satisfy, let alone EXCEEED, your expectations, because...well...It is boring. Simple as that. The plot itself is really plain. So plain, that it would actually be difficult to spoil anything, since there is almost nothing to spoil. The trailer alone can give out practically everything. And the film is really TOO LONG. And that makes this dull plot even MORE painfully tiresome. If they would have reduced the whole movie to about 30 minutes, I am sure it would have turned out to an interesting short, but now, harshly speaking, it looks like a bad version of ''127 hours''. This movie practically tells nothing new or interesting to the audience. But there is one reason to not completely condemn this title. Adrien Brody. Even thought, the story is disappointing, I cannot complain in any way about the amazing performance by Adrien Brody. Flawless acting. But that's it. Nothing more essentially positive that I can think of that was good in this movie... The make-up on Adrien Brody maybe?... If you have a significantly huge amount of unbendable patience within you, you may actually get lucky and think it was an OK movie. Otherwise, which is a lot more likely, you WILL not be impressed. At all.
