Despite a novel pursuit for its troubled protagonist - he's a part-time composer of electronic dance music - the filmmakers, Youssef Delara and Victor Teran, fall back on some familiar beats.
A stalker thriller rife with the kind of details that the filmmakers might call "psychological" and that psychologists might call "insultingly stupid."
A searing, penetrating look inside schizophrenia is exactly what "Enter the Dangerous Mind" isn't.
A narratively repetitive thriller suffused with movie-psycho clichés.
Tonally all over the place, it's hard to determine what Enter The Dangerous Mind wants to be, and what it wants to achieve.
There's not much praise to find-not in the substance, nor the ambition, nor the writing, nor the cast.
[Enter the Dangerous Mind] lacks the depth and resonance required to keep it from being merely unpleasant.
The best thing to be said about the ludicrously titled Enter The Dangerous Mind is that it doesn't waste a lot of time bsing the audience.
More of a surface examination of brewing instability, missing cinematic precision.
The title of Youssef Delara and Victor Teran's new film pretty much sums up its shallow and exploitative take on mental illness.
Edited, like one of Jim's musical tracks, with a violent percussiveness, Snap builds to the explosive conclusion that its title promises while always treating mental illness with sympathy and sensitivity.
Its dialectic on the possibilities of change and cure, though bleakly resolved, brings method and meaning to all the madness - and while the film is full of jarring distortions and violent moodswings, it never hits a wrong note.
