Movie Info

The unusual horror film Talking Head concerns an inexperienced film director who is brought in to complete an anime film after the film's original director has disappeared. Members of the idiosyncratic film crew begin turning up dead. Soon the new director must not only handle the main job of making the film, but must investigate why his crew is being dispatched. Eventually the anime world they are creating starts bleeding into the real world. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Talking Head


[font=Courier New]It is two months before the years most talked about anime movie is slated to debut in theaters. The problem is the director of the film has disappeared, there is no screenplay and nothing has been filmed at all. So a “migrant technical director” is brought in to finish the project so it meets its deadline. But shortly after he appears, crew members start to turn up dead. There is no denying that director Mamoru Oshii is a difficult director to get use to. The first time I saw [i]Ghost in the Shell[/i], I thought it was a decent film but one too smart for me to appreciate. With time though I have changed my views on that film, and now see it for the great film that it is. With time, maybe I can do the same for [i]Talking Head[/i]. But as of right now, the film is too tricky and too confusing for me to have gotten into it and enjoy while watching. [i]Talking Head[/i] has an interesting style to it, and I will give the film points on the unusual way that it is filmed. Plus, I thought the film history aspect as well as the film school-like ways it tries to teach you about films, and what it is about them that we love was interesting. And one of the films only strong points. But sadly, I just couldn’t enjoy this film at all. It was tedious almost the whole way through, with a few moments here and there that I enjoyed. It is a good film for fans of Oshii to see, since it is one of his few live action films. But as far as his smart films go, I will stick with [i]Ghost in the Shell[/i]. [/font]

I actually really enjoyed the style of this movie. Everything is on a set, literally. I don't have the appropriate words to describe how much I would love to see it again.

An uncomonly strange film. Feels almost like a dead serious version of Garth Merenghi's Dark Place.
