Storyline

Shot in the tradition of Alfred Hitchcock, THE EYES OF EDWARD JAMES tells the story of Edward, a patient regressed into the traumatic memory of the evening that his wife, Sarah, is brutally murdered. As his memory unfolds, however, it becomes apparent that Edward is not being completely honest with his doctor, just as Sarah was not being entirely honest with him on the night of her death.

amazingly captivating
29 June 2008 | by dan0220See all my reviews

I caught this randomly on CBC very late one night.

I was just about to go to bed when the title hit the screen, then I saw the opening shot and I swear that I was hooked.

I couldn't look away despite being so tired I could hardly keep my eyes open.

The film is shot in a first person perspective and the tension it creates simply by having the camera move from room to room is off the charts.

the calmness of the characters as they converse about what we are seeing adds a surreal type of fear that works perfectly.

Throw in a bit of mystery and you've got yourself an amazingly watchable short film that I am already dying to see again.
