Editorial Reviews

Once celebrated, Aleister Bain (Robert Miano, Fast & Furious, Dungeons & Dragons, Donnie Brasco) is now a whiskey-soaked, washed-up Hollywood screenwriter. Secluded in a sleazy hotel, he's desperately struggling to finish a script... with no success. But in this noir-esque thriller, truth is stranger than fiction and the chain-smoking Bain abruptly finds himself at the center of an investigation into the murder of a prominent politician's wife. Even as he is relentlessly pursued by hard-nosed police investigators (Danny Glover, Shooter, Dreamgirls, Saw, Lethal Weapon and Michael Rooker, The 6th Day, The Bone Collector, Cliffhanger), events inspire him and he begins producing his best work in years - until it all spirals out of control. As the officers' suspicions continue to grow - and another woman turns up dead - Bain must unravel the mystery of who's framing him - before he becomes the finale of his own who-dunnit. Also starring Academy Award-winner Martin Landau (9, EDtv, Ed Wood, TV's Mission Impossible), Billy Zane (Titanic, Dead Calm, The Phantom) and Meadow Williams (Apollo 13, The Mask, Beverly Hills Cop III).

Format: DVD
This is another mystery wrapped in an enigma - another Escher staircase of a drama that, after your climb, seems to land you impossibly where you started. So "Mysteria" isn't for viewers who like resolution.

But there's good acting here and arresting visuals. This movie also invites conjecture. Why does the lead character seem to exist in a 1940's noir world, chain-smoking in his seedy hotel room furnished most notably with an old black dial phone? Meanwhile, there's a whole modern world outside, with cell phones and late model cars.

Is the scriptwriter dreaming the grisly murders? Are they part of the script he's writing? Or are they all too real? You might want to check out this movie and decide for yourself.

Mysteria is a weird noir film that was a bit hard to follow. Danny Glover plays a police detective and the story is told as a flashback as Glover investigates a murder. Robert Miano plays a washed up Hollywood script writer who spends his time drinking and living in a cheap hotel. He has a deadline to meet on a screenplay, has used up all of his advances, hasn't started writing, and the rent is due. A young college girl named Lavina (Meadow Williams) takes an interest in his writing, and becomes the only person he can trust with his script.

While in a drunken stupor, a strange woman with a hollow here-after voice appears to him in a deserted bar and tells him to write about what happens to him, that it would become a great script. There is also a senator(Peter Mark Richman) involved who wants the script.

The acting was good, but the ending didn't give me closure as I must not of been paying close attention during the film trying to assess the details. I was as confused at the end as I was at the beginning. If you like confusing noir dramas with not much action, check it out.

No sex or nudity.

Format: DVD
The acting is not praise worthy, but it's not bad either. The dialog is acceptable. The noir feel of the movie works. Based on the typewriter, rotary dial phones, and things like the cars they showed, I figured late seventies or early eighties, but a character mentions computers and DVDs, so it's at least mid 90s I guess. The movie starts setting up a few different concepts/points that it implies will be important. It gives you something to wonder about, and feeds you clues that make you guess. It sets up a few sub-plot points too. And then it doesn't do anything with most of the main and sub concepts. The main plot is not resolved at all, and you end up with unanswered questions. The end would be unsatisfying, if the movie had built the characters enough for me to care. But I didn't. I came out of watching it just not caring. Like I mention in the title of this review, I might just not get the movie, but I would be happy if I could have my time back.
