I THINK WHAT STANDS OUT IN THIS MOVIE IS THE ACTING AND THE WONDERFUL MIND TRIP OF A PLOT. YOU SEE THE REALITY OF MAN TURN UPSIDE DOWN AND TWIST INTO A WORLD THAT HE SEEMS TO IMAGINE YET CAN NOT CONTROL.
AS HE WRITES HE SEES THE PEOPLE IN HIS LIFE WHO HAVE CAUSED HIM PROBLEMS THERE WITH HIM IN THE LOFT. HIS MIND STARTS TO UNRAVEL , HIS THOUGHTS BECOME CLOUDED BY IMAGES OF VIOLENCE AND INSANITY.
I WAS VERY WELL PLEASED WITH THIS MOVIE IT WORKED IN SO MANY WAYS. I LOVE THE ONE ACT FEEL TO THE MOVIE. THE END WHEN HE IS LOCKED INSIDE THE LOFT WORKS THE MOVIE WITH BEAUTY AND A TWISTED SENSE OF HORROR WHICH IS INSANITY ITSELF.
THE STORY BECOMES APART OF HIM AS HE ACTS OUT THE HORROR THAT HIS MIND HAS CREATED. THE DEPRESSION OF HIS LIFE, THE FEEL OF FAILURE BECAUSE OF WRITERS BLOCK. THIS MOVIE IS NOT ABOUT GORE OR MASSIVE BLOOD, IT'S THE MIND AND THE AFFECTS OF HOW FAR THE INNER THOUGHTS CAN BECOME REALITY, HOW EACH ONE IS MIXED INTO THE PUDDLE OF DARKNESS AND HOW THAT DARKNESS CAN TAKE OVER.
I REALLY SEE NO FAULTS WITH THIS MOVIE ACCEPT SOME SLOW SPOTS AT TIMES BUT THE FILM COMES TOGETHER IN THE END AS A WELL PLAYED OUT ONE ACT WITH MORE TO IT. IT SHOCKS ME FROM ALL THE NEGATIVE REVIEWS I HAVE READ ABOUT THIS AND I WONDER WHY PEOPLE WHERE SO NEGATIVE I THOUGHT THE MOVIE CAPTURED INSANITY TO THE POINT AND MADE THE VIEWER TAKE THAT TRIP ALSO.
Two big problems - one is that the actor character is far more interesting than Van Der Beek's character (at times I wished the movie would shift gears and make the movie about the edgy, self-absorbed actor instead of the needy, bland writer). The other problem is the story he's writing about the killer clown is a far better story than the main story. I would have rather seen THAT movie!
It starts off good, but after too much time goes by with nothing happening it becomes tough to keep caring or even stay awake.

Final Draft is directed very poorly and the plot line isn't much either. This movie drags on forever and has no direction. It's just a bunch of unnecessary loud noises. Read morePublished on December 17, 2008 by Joshua B. Pippin
