Movie Info

Though born a prodigy, with a frighteningly intuitive grasp of biology and physics, Jack (Louis Morabito) grew up in an environment that offset the advantage of his intellectual gifts. He suffered from a deeply troubled, issue-ridden childhood, largely thanks to a dysfunctional relationship with his ailing mother (Karen Peakes), then turned an even darker corner early in life when greeted by a traumatic vision that threatened to warp his mind and left him with seemingly permanent Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. Now, a mid-adolescent Jack has become a severe underachiever; he spends his extracurricular time working in an antique shop and fixing clocks. When he discovers one of Albert Einstein's journals hidden inside one of the clocks, Jack reads the contents and reasons that sleep may function as a doorway to a parallel dimension. He is subsequently pulled into a proverbial netherworld, full of symbolic visions of repressed memories. But just as Jack believes that he has discovered a gateway to another plane of existence, the visions that surround him gradually illustrate his progressive mental breakdown and pull Jack into an inescapable black hole of psychosis.

The 4th Dimension prevails for both its overall lack of pretension, as well as a more implicit approach to such psychological mindgames.

An 'art' movie (and we say that with the best of possible intentions) that is well worth checking out.

Drifting through this world with Jack, you've just got to let go and enjoy the slow burn.

It is a film whose concept is too often done, and usually only about as well as it's done here.
