ambition alone can't make a good film, and if those elements are poorly put together and not fully realized, it can become less than the sum of its already tired parts
On the bright side, the movie gets less irritating with each passing murder.
Playback posits cinema as a conduit for Satanic evil, but has nothing to say about the act of watching, except that its uniform horridness functions as an unintentional commentary on enduring pitiful horror-movie conventions.
Audience Reviews for Playback
- Frank Lyons: I have all the characteristics of a human being: blood, flesh, skin, hair; but not a single, clear, identifiable emotion, except for greed and disgust. Something horrible is happening inside of me and I don't know why. My nightly bloodlust has overflown into my days. I feel lethal, on the verge of frenzy. I think my mask of sanity is about to slip.
- Frank Lyons: You see, my friend, I can't help it if I'm driven by the motives of a stronger youth.
- Wylie: Not so, Frank. I feel as though the harpies call me to their den of lies and hatred.
- Quinn: Too true, my dear. Now I shall pull back the curtains of deceit on the foul beast called loneliness.
