Is this a remake? I could have sworn that there was an older version as well.

This was the most ridiculous sounding movie ever, until that literal ass to mouth movie Human Centipede came out.

I have seen neither but the Human Centipede (and its sequel) have hilarious synopses on Wikipedia.

Yah... I wanted to go with something pretty polarizing.

And apparently this "toothy vag" idea is a real myth...

I pray that "The Human Centipede" is not a future choice in here. I do not want to watch that movie again. One and done.

What I like about this is that, at it's heart, the movie is a modern take on the noir genre. Kilmer's performance is great, and the combination of his character's work and the character's narration really makes it easy to buy into this universe (even as the story stretches a little bit of credibility in the last 20-30 minutes). The choice to push towards more of a noir style is a subtle hint that there's really a detective story at play here, even before the reveal that Danny / Tom are working a case on their own.

As far as the character goes, there's a multi-level bit of trickery involved with Danny/Tom -- he claims he's playing a role to get back at the people who killed his wife, but he's as much convincing himself of that to deal with the grief. The symbolism was somewhat heavy-handed (literally putting his old life into a trunk, with a padlock, to keep it apart from the life he lives right now), but I enjoyed it nevertheless. His relationship w/ the girl across the apartment hall was interesting as well -- Danny lives his life with the regret that he couldn't save his wife, and wondering what would have happened if he had done something (stepped out from the bathroom, rushed the shooter, anything...). With the other girl, he decides to do something and ends up getting, from a certain point of view) the bullet that had been meant for him during the robbery where his wife died. I think it's an interesting choice by the filmmaker to have him shot in such a way but still survive -- almost as if he was being offered atonement both physically as well as mentally/spiritually and that allows him to move on.

I'll echo what's been said about D'Onofrio -- that character was fantastically twisted and just a great performance by him. Every scene he's in is bizarre and impossible to look away from. The JFK pigeon scene was both funny and alarming at the exact same time (though I did laugh when he referred to the cameraman as Zapruder).

Also want to say how much enjoyed the cinematography and music choice in the film. The trumpet is another noir trait, and I thought it was used effectively throughout the story. The rest of the soundtrack was similarly fantastic and really helped set the proper mood of depression that really seems to follow Danny around.

Great flick. 8/10
This review is incredible. Nice job

Interesting and good movie. Kilmer and the rest of the cast delivered. The camera angles were noticeably unique, some of the segue angles/zooms were a bit bad, but the ending scene with the syringe/gun was executed well.

The stuff about Kilmer's wife's parents (?) was kind of out there, as was some of the other storylines. I think they did a nice job balancing both Danny and his original personality, both had complete stories at the end. I was pleased with the ending.


Rating: 7.5/10

Onto Teeth.

I didn't realize until I looked at IMDB that Kilmer's wife's dad was R. Lee Ermey.

Evocative. I haven't watched this film in years. This review makes me want to see it again. I recall enjoying Kilmer's acting, especially in light of his current crummy output.
