Movie Info

Amy is hanging on by a thread. Struggling to cope with past sexual trauma and the daily aggressions of a male-dominated society, she creates grotesquely costumed alter egos that re-appropriate the male form. While giving her the sense of power she craves, acting as these characters pushes her further into a world of her own making. When she begins a new relationship with a seemingly good guy, she opens herself up to him - but that vulnerability comes at a dangerous cost, and her alter egos threaten to lash out in explosive violence. Based on the real experiences and art of co-writer/star Amy Everson, Felt doesn't just point a finger at rape culture; it takes a full on swing at it, creating a feminist psychological thriller that audiences will be hard-pressed to shake off.

It's a reminder that while genre movies usually look toward violence, there's just as rich territory to be explored in what happens after it, in the marks it leaves that go beyond the physical.

"Felt" is a moodily disturbing character study of a besieged woman for whom art is engagement and coping mechanism, but also conversely a source of alienation and even a weapon.

July 16, 2015 | Full Review…

Director and co-writer Jason Banker's story of post-rape trauma is deeply unpleasant (you were expecting maybe a cheerful story, one in which Chekhov's gun somehow doesn't go off?), but thoughtfully, creatively so.

Some viewers will no doubt find "Felt" maddening because it never answers seemingly crucial plot questions that a normal movie or TV show would feel compelled to clear up. That ambiguity is precisely the source of its power, and its cinematic quality.

At once underwritten and overconceptualized. Reading about the filmmakers' intentions is more rewarding than watching the results.

Although there are a few moments that feel a little too on the nose, Felt sneaks up on you and lingers for hours afterward.

Audience Reviews for Felt

Bold, eerie, and darkly haunting, FELT is a brutally nihilistic journey through the life of a cynical young woman disenchanted with love and the world around her. Though slow-paced and meager in providing any discernible plot, FELT succeeds as an unparalleled exploration of feminism, sexuality, and the bleakness of human existence. FELT probably also holds the record for the most fake penises and vaginas shown in a film.
