They are both changed by their time together, but neither knows if this change is for the better or not. Skinning the Cat is about taking responsibility for the past. Whether it was something we did, or had done to us, can we come to terms with what has happened and move forward? Skinning the Cat offers no answers, only possibilities. Written by Anonymous

You'll find yourself hooked.

Who am I? Why am I here? Who is responsible for my fate? Somehow, the brain tricks us into the belief that answers to these questions—almost any answers—must and will illuminate our way forward. Answers must exist, and must be found to justify our state, our behavior, our existence. In addressing these issues Kevin Land's script raises as many questions as it answers. But this is great. Land keeps us guessing, in a satisfying sense: you won't find the usual audience manipulation in this thriller/psychological drama. Two strong characters face us on the screen, yet the off-screen characters fall in and out of focus as vividly or enigmatically as the situation demands. Why does Ned the kidnapper behave the way he does? Shouldn't Bruce the victim be more alarmed as Ned's captive, and about Ned's clear threats to his family? As I watched this movie, parallel and plausible scenarios flashed through my mind. "Skinning the Cat" is low budget, and its theatrical heritage is evident, but there's plenty of believable action, and plenty of emotional substance to discuss when it's over. Matthew Willson is one hell of a fine actor. Here, his interpretation of Ned the kidnapper is quite stellar—you'll find yourself hooked.
