'The Resident' is a handsome looking thriller, with some really
beautiful cinematography in particular (by Hellboy's Guillermo
Navarro), & high production values in general. Unfortunately, that's
about all that's going for it - there's nothing even remotely new or
surprising on display in this film, nothing you won't have seen a
hundred times before.
Hilary Swank is a young ER doctor who moves into a new apartment
building in Brooklyn, owned by the charming & handsome Max, who we come
to find is psychotically obsessed with her..
Yep, like I said, you see where this is going. Swank isn't called on to
do anything much more than take her clothes off every once in awhile,
which is a pity as she can be a fine actress, given the right role.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan's performance as Max is delicate, sensual &
actually quite moving early on, but he is at odds with the film he is
appearing in, which simply wants him to be a generic cardboard cut-out
psycho. There is no real attempt at explanation for Max's behaviour, &
no empathy for him as a human being. His maleness is portrayed as a
threat, & creepy simply by definition.
Christopher Lee is, as always, a welcome sight, but is wasted as a
spooky 'Norma Bates' style parent with about 4½ minutes of screen time.
The only other male in the film is Juliet's "asshole" ex-boyfriend
Jack, who has even less screen-time than Lee, & if you've seen any of
this genre of film before, you'll have a pretty good idea what he's
for, what he does, & where he ends up.
This is a misandric movie because there are no ordinary men in it, only
bad, psychotic or inadequate men. The woman, on the other hand, is
portrayed as entirely good & a victim to boot. Which makes it no
different from countless other films you've seen before, of course. But
the point is, there will be countless more, if no-one ever stops to
point it out.
I wish there was more to say. There's a couple of good shocks in there
towards the end, & some nicely handled suspense but it just seems a
pity to have wasted them on something so wholly unoriginal & unpleasant
