Editorial Reviews

Academy Award®-nominee Willem Dafoe* (Spiderman, Platoon) is a detective drawn into a gruesome case in this intense psychological thriller. Haunted by the killings, he soon finds himself confronting his own deadly past. With each slaying, the investigation takes a different, darker turn. And the nearer he's drawn to the murders, the closer he could become the ultimate victim - or take the fall for the crimes. Also starring Scott Speedman (The Strangers) and Clea Duvall ("Heroes").

Customer Reviews

In the end it really didn't end up being anything special at all and I felt like I had seen this movie before.
Uncle Chino
Dafoe plays Detective Stan Aubray, a burnt-out, alcoholic, OCD forensic psychologist, on the trail of a killer that poses his victims in mind bogglingly complex poses.
Brian Long
Perhaps the director channeled all his energy into create the visual style and fashioned that he was making an art film.

Do you remember Seven, that awesome thriller with Pitt and Freeman and Spacey? Do you remember just how wrong the murder scenes were? Get ready to feel that sensation again with Anamorph, the movie that really, truly could have been.

Dafoe plays Detective Stan Aubray, a burnt-out, alcoholic, OCD forensic psychologist, on the trail of a killer that poses his victims in mind bogglingly complex poses.

The acting and storytelling of this is top notch. The feel thats recreated with alarming clarity is Seven, right down to the energetic, cocky and somewhat arrogant new guy paired with the grizzled, embittered veteran. The partner, however, is quickly dealt off, and the plot begins to nose dive after an hour. Dafoes character begins to ignore police protocol, common sense and eventually any sense of morals by the end of the film. Actions begin to become hollow and drawn out, without any apparent sense or purpose. Side plots, including a reporter with apparent romantic tension and Dafoes partner investigating Dafoes character as a copycat killer are chewed up and choked fatally on, dying after one or two hesitant breaths

The only assumption that I can come up with is that the initial writer either died or walked away halfway through, as a competent director, no matter how fervent, could've have botched a movie so badly and still had so many fantastic scenes. The best I can recommend is to rent this truly tragically still-born gem and watch to just after the third murder, then imagine a climax and ending, as nothing you can come up with could compare to the sheer awfulness of the hackneyed cop-out that was made, which resembles a freight train attempting to toot out the tune to the end of 2001 crashing into a brickwall.

A lot of people think that Gary Ridgway killed people because, well, he liked to kill people. Other people believe that he killed prostitutes because, at least partially, he wanted free sex. Look at it from whatever perspective you want, but from my angle, I'll go with the latter.

Early on in the film, Willem Dafoe, who seems to be a college-professor-slash-murder-detective, warns his students with something like the following: "When you view a murder scene, take your time and look at it for awhile before deciding why the killer killed. After all, he may not even know himself." Indeed. When Dave Reichert asked Mr. Ridgway if he was different than other people, if he was perhaps missing something vital in his personality that caused him to be a serial killer, Mr. Ridgway just shrugged his shoulders and more asked than answered, "Maybe that whole 'caring' thing?" (I found that line darkly humorous myself, as probably did the filmmakers of "The Hunt for the Green River Killer." I don't believe Mr. Reichert found it amusing, however.)

And this is the setup for a film that I found quite underrated. The theme would probably be simply "perspective." Mr. Dafoe, who I think has chosen a few roles lately that have gone off the rails -- see "Antichrist" and "444: Last Day on Earth" to name but two -- chose to play another character here that is slightly off, but not completely. He's much more controlled, and even though his character has had a dark and troubled past, plays it close to the vest. At first, I thought that he was one of those "gatekeeper" guys, or someone that purposefully hides information at work to stay ahead of his peers. But that would be too simplistic, kind of like those people above that think that Mr.

This is a very artistic, creative crime drama. It will leave you panting for the sequel. I bought though I had caught it on cable.

Anamorph (Henry Miller, 2007)

The first review I saw after watching this movie started out with the sentence "this movie could have been so much better than it actually was." And I agreed with it, but then I started thinking: how many movies can you not say that about? I've seen thousands over the course of my life, and I can think of--maybe--half a dozen that would qualify. That said, I do totally get where that reviewer was coming from. This is a movie that had almost limitless potential, but got sidetracked by a few bad decisions along the way.

Plot: a serial killer is at work in the big city. Stan Aubray (The Boondock Saints' Willem Dafoe), who retired after the city's last big serial killer case, Uncle Eddie, is called in by his old boss (The Box's James Rebhorn, a fine actor we don't see on the screen nearly enough these days) thanks to some startling similarities to the Uncle Eddie slayings five years earlier. He finds himself teamed with impulsive go-getter Carl Uffner (The Strangers' Scott Speedman), who has a tendency to jump to conclusions, though he is about to get promoted to the same Detective First Class role Aubray has. (That Aubray also jumps to conclusions, and got his promotion by doing so, is understood.) The media and the police believe this new guy is a copycat killer, but the longer Aubray works the case, the more convinced he is that five years ago, they got the wrong man. And now Uncle Eddie is after Stan Aubray...

I've only begun to talk about the amazing cast that populates this film. Peter Stormare plays a shady art expert who helps Aubray with his investigation (as well as helps him acquire cut-rate antique furniture).
