Intriguing Concept With Strong Performances
10 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It may take a second viewing of Dolls for Strangers in order to really get it. It moves pretty fast and doesn't always follow a chronological order. But, I mean it as a compliment to say after watching it the first time, I wanted to see it again. I wanted to revisit the characters and story to help me fill in what I missed. It's a clever idea--taking Vodoo far away from its African-Caribbean origins and moving it to what looks like a pretty standard American suburb. A young guy, Tony, has figured out how to run a business making dolls--kind of a Voodoo for Hire. He has a personal connection to this with his sister, too, whom he suspects was a victim of it.

Visually, I think it's flawless, and has a dark and dreamy quality to it--with a haunting piano theme that doesn't intrude over the images. Because it's so short, the whole thing plays out almost like a poem on film as opposed to a traditional narrative with dialog (although there is dialog). It raises a lot of questions, and after watching it, you're bound to come up with even more questions. Fortunately, writer-director Ken Cohen knew there was no point in trying to give any answers. Trying to explain anything you see in this film would just end up unsatisfying.
