On the brink of their beloved single screen independent movie theater being shut down forever, a misfit band of theater workers face the corporate evil, foreclosure and the unthinkable...... See full summary »
After his latest film is met with horrible reviews, Able Whitman sets out to prove the critics wrong by finding inspiration in his cast and crew. Sometimes great art requires great sacrifice, and the director always gets final cut.
THE SCRIBBLER follows Suki (Katie Cassidy), a young woman confronting her destructive mental illness using "The Siamese Burn," an experimental machine designed to eliminate multiple personalities. The closer Suki comes to being "cured," she's haunted by a thought - what if the last unwanted identity turns out to be her?Written by
I don't usually review films as they are very subjective and everyone seems to expect something different but this was getting so much negativity that I thought it deserved some recognition.
I came across this while looking through a list of Sci-fi films but this is not Sci-fi. There is an element of that genre but it's mostly about one persons struggle with certain elements of her character which I found fascinating. What I liked mostly where the images and symbolism that made this film resonate with me very deeply. It's a film that makes you think, some people just don't like to do that so they are dismissing it because they just didn't 'get it'. In places the acting could have been a little better and a couple of pieces in the storyline where a little 'clunky', I agree with that but mostly the style and cinematography made up for it.
I liked the way it was played out, I liked the characters, I liked the story line and I loved the way it ended which was unexpected. The story was interesting in a way that I did not expect too after reading other reviews and especially after reading the synopsis but it was very well handled overall.
If you like films like Memento and Reservoir Dogs (for the story lines not the action), I think you would enjoy this, somebody else said this could become a cult classic and I totally agree, well worth watching !
