Interesting that the synopsis uses the word "schizophrenic" though the term is never explicitly stated in the film itself. There is a lot of information that's purposely omitted in this story and I wonder if not generalizing Peter's disorder is an example of that device. After all, the ending makes a clear point about not jumping to conclusions and Peter demonstrates behavior consistent with several disorders.
An amazing study of the twisted mind. Goes to show how important sight and sound are. The performances are utterly belivable in every stretch of the imagination. Giving the film that more of an edge. An amazing film by a very capable director.
Even though the plot was a bit lacking, I thought it was pretty good at showing the spectrum of mental disorders for the characters. Peter Greene really commits to his character. It's too bad he's really typecast as a baddie these days, but obviously he's quite good at it.
Lodge Kerrigan's dark character study is an incredibly fascinating film - the sparse, disjointed cinematic style and excellent, authentic performances create a compelling tension. But without a strong central story, even at just 80 minutes, it does feel too long. Not a great film, but a very interesting one.
