The Letter Reviews
Now, I haven't seen Winona Ryder in forever. Maybe not even since Black Swan. Her role in this film felt a lot like her roles in both Black Swan and Girl Interrupted. I loved her in this movie, she was perfect, but maybe that is because she has done it before.
Basically, this movie was about a play writer/director who goes insane as she gets further and further into her play. She confuses the play with reality until she doesn't know which is which. Again, very much like Black Swan.
So...why did I enjoy this movie? The acting was great, the camera angles rough and intense and the movie interesting. Please note the super creepy mime/zombie/seizure lady in the beginning.
What a complete load of rubbish! With a name like Obsessed and a cast with James Franco and Winona Ryder, I was expecting something interesting and entertaining, but this was really bad. Most of the film was set on stage with Winona Ryder directing a play, which was really bad, and on top of that, you've got Winona Ryder narrating the whole story. I really can't see what the director was trying to achieve with this film because there isn't much point to it. I can understand the twist which comes out at the end, but by that time I deliberately made myself busy so I could get through the annoying pile of rubbish. The stupid piano that's going through the whole movie is really annoying and the mood if depressing. Just stay away from the film!
I darn see why the hell James Franco and Winona Ryder agreed to doing this film because the script is appalling. Maybe they were just paying bills. Ever since Winona Ryder got caught thieving, her career has gone from bad to worse, and this movie isn't going to so her any favours. She's need a film like Beetlejuice 2 to bring her our of the dark. As for James Franco, I always knew that he does quirky movies, but I really can't see why he would want this film on his filmography. Anyway, I really can't find anything good to say about this film because there is nothing interesting or entertaining about it.
Budget: $10million (Waste Of Money!)
Worldwide Gross: N/A
I recommend this movie anyone that wants to get bored to death. 1/10
