Unconventional psychological thriller that serves like a romantic comedy
29 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

The Voices starts almost like one of Jim Carrey's romantic comedies. It has uplifting opening music, a pastel color scheme, cartoon creatures, and a lonely male protagonist named Jerry, who is seemingly just another hard-working guy at the factory. Although there are certain hints that this film is not entirely what it seems at first, you are basically led to believing it is your average comedy experience with just a minor twist or two.

Jerry, played by Ryan Gosling, has a couple of love interests at his workplace -- Fiona and Lisa, played by Gemma Arterton and Anna Kendrick, respectively. While Arterton's character is a bit of a nag, Kendrick's character is her usual girl-next-door type, and they both lend a lot to the romantic comedy feel of the film.

Then again, at some point it becomes clear that this is one of those psychological thrillers that challenge the border between good and evil. While most such films ultimately make you feel disturbed or instill fear in you, this one accomplishes the exact opposite by forcing you to see things from the perspective of the lead character. You may find yourself laughing at things you shouldn't, or you may feel somewhat sickened by the dark nature of the story. Whichever your reaction is, you notice the unique way how this film sheds a light on the mindset of its protagonist.
