Storyline

'Castingx' is a psycho chiller-thriller. A dark journey into voyeurism, seduction and revenge. An unusual love story where reality and fiction merge in a deathly blur. Steven is a loner. He has a job in a shabby gasoline station on the border between the civilized world and the wastelands of a forbidding desert. Bored and restless, he indulges in fantasies about movies, dreaming to be a famous film director himself. When occasionally a woman stops at the pumps, he secretly puts her on tape, using the security camera. Actually he is casting. The only one who seems to believe in Steven's ambitions is Tony, the assistant of his father, who owns the petrol station. Steven's father Charly is most of the time engaged in the production of cheap porn movies. He treats his son with cruel contempt, since the death of Steven's mother, years ago. Steven never stopped missing his mom. He visits her grave almost every day, even asking her advice about his first feature film. Then, one day, Helena ... Written by Ad Bol

A unique and original thriller
1 October 2006 | by j-john-johnSee all my reviews

A friend of mine told me about a movie he saw which he found very interesting. He knows I'm a big fan of this kind of thrillers. I must say I was very skeptical about Dutch people making an English film, but I wasn't disappointed. I'm also not a fan of Ellen ten Damme, but in this film her role was very strong. I liked the creepy atmosphere and the images. In the beginning it wasn't so easy to follow the story, but it kept my attention. The actor that plays Steven, the main character in the film is Dutch, but I only found this out at the end of the film when I saw the credits. Castingx is not the most easy film there is. If you like more mainstream Hollywood pictures, this is probably not the best film for you. If you wanne see something different, this might be something for you. John.
