Without going into detail, the movie is worth a look-see just to see how the writer links everything together. On the flip side, some elements don't link as well. This is the comedy and horror elements. At times, the viewer isn't sure which the movie is intended to be. Stick with it. It will all make sense later.
Desmond Harrington does a great job of creating a figure that you want to root for, then feel deathly afraid of.
I would recommend this movie to horror aficionados. I think they would truly appreciate this film.
Kenneth is mental but you feel sorry for the dude as you throws away his life for Nikki. Lisa is the other love interest in this film and makes the movie come to life.
You have got to see this twisted little story.
The plot breaks down very simply to an introverted guy who falls for his new pretty assistant. He is so atrophied with shyness that he feebly rejects HER offers of going out. So what's this poor, misuderstood sap to do . . .?
Empty his bank account to order a life-like sex doll detailed to resemble his assistant, of course!
However, the real fun starts when he finally does begin to develop a relationship with the young woman . . . And the love doll jealously begins voicing her resentments . . .
I have no intention of spoiling the various twists and turns that occur after this. So, hopefully, the basic set-up will convince more adventurous moviephiles (Horror fans or otherwise) to take a chance on this little gem.
All I can say is "The English Patient" sequence is, at once, insane, hilarious and more than worth the price of a rental. Guys, you will never feel the same watching a chick flick on the couch with your sweetie (plastic or otherwise).
Warning: <em>Love Object</em> is not at all the film you think it is.
Anti-warning: it's about a dozen times better.
Parigi, a prolific TV producer, took a single crack (to date) at doing the writer-director thing. The film made the rounds of festivals, where it was accepted and screened at both Cannes and Tribeca (both notoriously competitive), then got an extremely limited NYLA theatrical run in early 2004 before going to DVD. Critics split on the movie along, mostly, the predictable lines: the horror kids dug it and realized this is actually a really low-key flick, while the more mainstream critics savaged it. (Two notable exceptions: the movie garnered favorable reviews from the <em>LA Times</em> and <em>Chicago Tribune</em>.) Ebert credits the movie with/blames it for "grisly sadism"; what movie was he watching? Not this one.
Plot: Kenneth Winslow (<em>Dexter</em>'s Desmond Harrington) is a writer of technical manuals, a geek who spends his time at home eating takeout pizza when he's not being an exemplary employee much-beloved of his boss (the inimitable Rip Torn). All is well until Lisa Bellmer (<em>The Guardian</em>'s Melissa Sagemiller), a new temp, slightly klutzy, slightly frumpy, and preternaturally beautiful, enters the workplace. Kenneth is smitten, but has no clue how to approach the girl of his dreams. So instead of asking her out, after he comes upon an ad hocking life-size rubber dolls (think RealDoll in the real world, and remember this movie is a satire), he shells out the ten grand and has them model one on Lisa. After which things go back to normal...Read more ›
