Storyline

Philosophy professor Walter Zarrow is wounded during a mugging. In an effort to escape he rings buzzers indiscriminately, waking Sam, a middle aged father of two having an affair in the city. Sam reluctantly answers Zarrow's pleas, and Zarrow loses consciousness in his arms. Through an exploration of why these men, along with the mugger, and an addict named Joe, come together, we explore New York City. The experience of Zarrow, Sam, Joe and Zarrow's assailant ripple quickly out to include the connected lives of a housewife struggling with alcoholism, a stoner teen desperate to lose his virginity, a brilliant but failed writer fighting addiction, two parents confronting the prospect of terminal illness, and a brilliant grad student who wounds herself to feel alive.

An indie drama that is a mixed-bag.
24 January 2016 | by Peter LormeSee all my reviews

Anesthesia (2015) is an indie drama is produced,written,directed by Tim Blake Nelson, who also stars in the film. This film is a mixed bag for me. I thought the acting was phenomenal. The script was creative, but at times I found it dull. I was bored for most of the film. The ending was investing and pulled me in. I cannot say that about the majority of the film. The movie centers around several characters. This can either work or flop. The movie manages to do both. The characters I liked/cared about: the professor, the self-destructive student and the junkie. The characters that I didn't like/care about: The cheating husband and his alcoholic wife, the junkie's brother, the professor's wife. The other characters are neutral, mainly because they are completely forgettable. Solid start, flat middle, great ending.
