Editorial Reviews

In this mind-bending psychological thriller, college student Henry Lethem (Ryan Gosling) plans to kill himself in three days, unless psychologist Sam Foster (Ewan McGregor) can save him. But after his first encounter with the disturbed young man, Sam finds he's losing his own grip on reality, as he, too, is thrust into a nightmarish place between life and death. With the help of his girlfriend (Naomi Watts), Sam races to unlock the dark secrets of Henry's tortured psyche in this suspenseful chiller that will keep you guessing right up to the shocking ending!

Stay is an interesting film. Unfortunately it suffered from very poor and misleading marketing and ended up attracting the wrong audience. True to form, it received many poor reviews from infuriated viewers who were expecting something totally different. It is NOT a horror movie or a movie about the supernatural. Neither is it a thriller as such. Nonetheless it is interesting and well made. As a previous reviewer said, it may appeal to fans of the original "Twilight Zone". As another reviewer more acerbically put it, it will appeal most to the "Artsy-Fartsy" type. The film is deliberately confusing, requires concentration and would definitely benefit from a rewatching, if it hasn't totally turned off the viewer by the end.

The following paragraphs contain spoilers so don't read further if you want to see the movie with a fresh mindset. Just bear the above in mind.

The movie begins with a car crash which we are told nothing about. We are then shown the person from the car crash (Ryan Gosling) seeing a psychiarist (Ewan McGregor). We are not told if this is the future or the past. What follows is surreal, like a dream. The director in his accompanying commentary tells us how he wanted the film to have a "stream of consciousness" feel to it. So, disconnected scenes melt into each other seamlessly in typical dreamlike fashion. The man tells the psychiatrist he will kill himself in 3 days. The psychiatrist then goes on a wild hunt to find out more about his patient. We know from the start that something is not right with the narrative. Clues abound that the narrative is not real. There are also indications that the psychiatrist and his patient are one person. From about a third of the way through the movie, I came under the suspicion that this was all in the psychiatrist's mind.

It's true that this film sat on the shelf for a long time and did horribly at the box office. That can be bad news, but in this case, it simply means that no one knew how to market this film. It was advertised as a horror film, but is more of a Hitchcockian/arthouse film than anything.

This is not a film for everyone, but for those who enjoy films that make you think about the art of the film itself, not just about some supposedly profound 'message' being pushed, this is a great film. Roger Ebert has nailed this film on the head in his review.

I, like a lot of people, found this movie to be amazing and extremely thought-provoking. The cinematography was very creative, and the acting was fantastic. I have to say, the dialogue was a little flat, but, other than that, it was one of the best movies that I saw last year. I blame its lack of success on both the horrible, almost non-existent marketing (which is strange for a movie with such a well-known cast), as well as a lot of people's apathy towards movies that require them to think and analyze. I suspect a lot of people who saw this told their friends that it was "bad" simply because they didn't get it. I will definitely be buying the DVD when it comes out on March 28.

Psychiatrist Sam Foster (McGregor) is filling in for a co-worker when he meets Henry Letham (Gosling). Henry clearly has some problems, and when he tells Sam that he is going to kill himself in a few days on his 21st birthday, Sam decides to try to save him. As Sam begins to look into Henry's life, he finds the line between reality and illusion begin to blur.

"Stay" is all of that and none of that at the same time. Things are not what they seem, and it is interesting to watch things unfold. What could have been a huge twist at the end is instead diffused by scenes early on the let the audience in on what is happening. In fact, it is possible to know what is going on from the very beginning of the film. What makes the movie great is the journey they characters take on the way to the inevitable end.

Director Marc Forster does an amazing job of making all things tie together. If something in the movie seems odd, it is there for a reason, and if you pay close enough attantion, you will see what I mean. The acting is good as well, but is not what makes the movie so good. "Stay" is an entertaining and thought provoking film that I highly recommend.

I agree with the assessments here - "Stay" was underrated, poorly marketed, mis-targeted (*not* a horror film), etc. Definitely a film you've got to see twice to see how it all fits together. I found myself at the end recalling all the things Ryan Gosling said ("I hear voices") and got really juiced at how it all fit together so perfectly. It's maybe one of the best endings to a movie ever. Quite the sudden and stunning denouement. You gotta love a movie with a denouement...and Naomi Watts.

I have never seen a film that got me involved on such a deep level of creativity. Every single scene change was deeply thought out. Every line, action, outfit, setting, and even extras were deeply thought out. This is the most impressive directing and writing I can remember seeing. See this movie. Listen to Marc Forster's Podcast on Itunes and do your research to get more enjoyment out of every little fact about the film.
