Times are tough for talented, twenty-one year old filmmaker, Donny Rocconi. He grew up in New York City, a place where either you learn fast, or lose everything. Estranged from his mother, and never knowing his dead father, Donny sets out to collect on debts owed, and is dragged deep into a seductive ambush that turns his world upside down. Donny reaches out for help from a "connected" Mulberry Street café owner, Gigetto, who has more problems than just the Russian mob. Insidious is a compelling and riveting story of desperation and betrayal, as Donny faces a fight for truth, love, and life itself. Insidious has a strong ensemble of New York City acting talent, and their multiple adult story lines are centered in their emotional and financial relationships.Written by
I saw this movie in Florida in October and loved the naturalistic approach the director used in building the story and the visuals. He shot it simply, yet it has great depth, with some of the most beautiful and unusual New York City shots I have ever seen. The back ground music and songs have a haunting quality to them, and do not overpower the spoken words, like most movies I see these days that are music videos with some dialogue.
This is a mysterious film, with some very strong performances, especially the young man who portrays the lead role of Donny, and the gal that plays Arin. The story, intertwines a lot of New York characters that all come together toward the end of the film.
This movie has some great lines, that stick with you afterword's, and the story is really relevant in todays world. I have always loved films that let me make up my own mind about what is happening, rather than being force fed on what to think, and this film delivers that in spades.
They should do a sequel or turn this into an on going series on cable.
