Movie Info

In this short, a writer named Algernon (but called Harry by his friends) buys a picture of a boat on a lake, and his obsession with it renders normal life impossible. He attempts to function again by consulting an analyst and becoming married, but eventually succumbs to his strange anxiety by disappearing into the picture.

Not the best I have seen from Martin Scorsese. But nevertheless, this is one piece of art. I'll admit that I was very confused as to what was going on. But I cleared my mind when I watched it a second time. But I am still confused as to why he went into the picture. Although it's not genius it's still clever. I did find it to be a little to fast paced for a Scorsese film. But it's a short so it has to be fast paced. I also liked how objects would disappear. I would recommend this to die hard Martin Scorsese fans or to people that like short films.
