Product Description

In a house haunted with memories, gangster and father Ulysses Pick (Jason Patric) arrives home after a long absence tow­ing the body of a teenaged girl and a bound and gagged young man. His gang waits inside his house, having shot their way past police. There is friction in the ranks. Ulysses, however, is focused on one thing: journey­ing through the house, room by room, and reaching his wife Hyacinth (Isabella Rossellini) in her bedroom upstairs. The equilibrium of the house has been disturbed and his odyssey eventually becomes an emotional tour, as the ghostly nooks and crannies of the house reveal more about the mysterious Pick family.

Review

`I feel charged! says the man in the electric chair. A great Guy Maddin film will do that to you and make no mistake, this is one of his great ones. Maddin s mad mélange of melodramatic ghosts and meddlesome mobsters frames a memory tour like none other, exploding two genres with one powerful pop. Jason Patric is Homer-iffic as Ulysses, a charismatic gangster whose violent personal odyssey returns him to his haunted home, therein to confront the restless spirits and animated bodies who haunt him --The Toronto Star

"At times as creepy as The Shining --Gavin Smith, Film Comment

3 ½ Stars. Surreal, sensational and weird, the film is pure maddeningly, magic Maddin. Winnipeg's Guy Maddin remains the most innovative, high-risk gambler in Canadian cinema. --Toronto Sun

I haven't watched a film as dark and psychological as "Keyhole," since "Eraserhead." A naked man chained to a bed and things being done for sometimes, no apparent reason. This film was the perfect noir for B&W (o.k., a couple of frames of color, unexpectedly!) Jason Patric is always interesting in this one and Director Guy Maddin manages to pull off one strange movie. Not for the kids, in case you were wondering.

Guy Maddin's films are on the weird side like lynch or cronenberg but they hold their own. This film is not too weird but it has its moments. Great performances by Jason Patric and Isabella Rossallini. If you are a fan of his work check it out.

Far be it for a Guy Maddin film to be bizarre. `Keyhole' is one of those films that feels so strange, almost uncomfortably so. I am not familiar with much of Maddin's work. In fact, I think I've only seen this and `The Saddest Music in the World' (which I loved) and so I'm not all that familiar with his style, although I can gather from those two experiences where his head is at.

For me `Keyhole' is far more about the style than the substance, which is a shame. `The Saddest Music in the World' felt so balanced in that regard, offering us enough style to accentuate the substance. Here, the substance seems stripped and the style amped to result in a bizarrely entertaining film that is overly long and ultimately forgettable. Still, there are aspects of this film that deserve our attention; namely the technical merits (those costumes and set pieces are to die for) and the central performances (Jason Patrick, Isabella Rossellini and Brooke Palsson taking top honors).

The plot is basically a sadistic fable that follows a gangster named Ulysses as he returns home with a drenched teenage girl and a bound and gagged young man. Ulysses is at odds with his wife, Hyacinth, who is secluded upstairs with her father. Despite the prospect of a mutiny between his gang of thugs, Ulysses is intend on finding his wife by searching the house room by room, twist by turn.

It's a warped film without a real sense of direction and yet it keeps you drawn to every frame. It's a film I feel like I can admire without loving and one that I may actually look back to with even more respect and admiration as time goes by. It is well worth seeing, and one to watch more than once, since the initial viewing is sure to be dampened by confusion.

Format: DVD
This is a creepy, haunting thriller from start to finish! As Scary as 'The Shining' because you don't know what will happen next. A gangster arrives home with a woman's body hanging over his shoulder to find dark, disturbing events taking place inside his haunted house. His gang, who escaped the police await for his arrival, and they don't have the highest respect for him. His wife is upstairs in her bedroom, and there's a lot of activity going on inside the house. The home becomes an emotional roller-coaster ride of horror, strangeness, nudity, and a darkness that reflects upon the mysterious family that live there. Not Recommended for Children, or viewers who dislike psychological thrillers. This one in particular will indeed send chills up your spine!
