I saw this film on the closing night of Sundance, mostly because all
the other films I wanted to see were sold out. I'm glad I went. Nick
Stahl and Vera Farmiga dance adeptly around and through the film's
premise, which is coaxed pleasantly out of a screenplay that
writer-director Carlos Brooks has polished over seven years.
Stahl plays a public radio reporter confined to a wheelchair since a
childhood accident. While following a lead in a bizarre story, he meets
Fiona (Farmiga), a mysterious woman who leads him into a reclusive
subculture. At first, microphone in hand, he wants the story. But then
a trip to a second-hand store for some shoes convinces him the story
isn't what he thought it was.
The Sundance catalogue billed it as a "psychological thriller," but in
my opinion that misses the mark. Yes, we're introduced to some oddly
quirky characters along the way. But Brooks bills is as a detective
story, and that's how I think it's best approached. It's an exercise in
restrained exposition that keeps the viewer guessing right up until the
film's final scenes.
As with most independent films, this one makes good use of small-scale
locations and intimate moments. Even the Manhattan exteriors favor
enclosed sidewalks and narrow passages. The cinematography, done on
high-definition video, is crisply executed and richly textured with
subtle but effective details. (The lustrous wallpaper in Fiona's
apartment actually has its own screen credit.) The camera spends a
great deal of time at the eye level of a wheelchair occupant,
emphasizing the point of view and expanding the small spaces in which
many of the film's scenes take place.
Stahl and Farmiga drive a substantial portion of the film by
themselves. Brooks admits that the their story took over the film as he
shot and edited it. As a result the supporting ensemble retreats to the
distance, a position from which performances from James Frain (as
Stahl's mentor) and Michal Leamer (Fiona's mother) can give brief but
Vera Farmiga creates a complex character whom you can't help loving,
hating, and fearing all at the same time. Nick Stahl's performance
stays even and understated until his veneer breaks apart and the
detective story comes full circle.
The only negative aspect to the film is the frank treatment of the
subculture that frames the principal characters, not because the
treatment is unfair or poorly executed, but because it's likely to take
the average viewer by surprise. Look for wide release in May 2008.
