Storyline

Dr David Wright's emotional torment now prevents him from functioning as a therapist. The woman he has loved has vanished from his life 'forever'. Rene Maurer, one of his regular patients, has died - an apparent suicide. Rene's sister, Erika, traveling to London to sort out his things, discovers something curious - his apartment is almost empty. A cup, a spoon, a fork, a knife, frames without pictures, torn photos... One more curiosity - a list of memories. Four dated descriptions of moments in Rene's life. Another patient dies. Another list of memories. There's something strange going on. Something sinister behind these 'suicides'... Written by Anonymous

A psychologically-driven masterpiece! MUST SEE!
29 August 2012 | by kellystacey1980See all my reviews

Simon Horrocks' Third Contact is one such case. This psychologically-driven film follows David (Tim Scott-Walker), a psychotherapist who's seemingly feeling more like his patients lately with bouts of depression and a sense hopelessness. As David digs deeper into the apparent suicide of his patient, strange and mysterious things start to happen. Writer/director Simon Horrocks did a great job combining both the style and substance with this one. The look and pace of the film fit the source material, so much that I felt closer to the main character. While the film certainly is more psychologically-driven, and this one especially requires a lot of attention, it was EXTREMELY stimulating. A brilliant ending and a film that may leave you with more questions than answers, but that shouldn't be a bad thing especially in today's cinematic climate. A must see film!
