Editorial Reviews

Schizoid serial killer Carl Stargher (Vincent D'Onofrio) has been captured at last, but a neurological seizure has rendered him comatose, and FBI agent Peter Novak (Vince Vaughan) has no way to determine the location of Stargher's latest and still-living victim. To probe the secrets contained in Stargher's traumatized psyche, the FBI recruits psychologist Catherine Deane (Jennifer Lopez), who has mastered a new technology that allows her to enter the mind of another person. What she finds in Stargher's head is a theater of the grotesque, which, as envisioned by first-time director Tarsem Singh, is a smorgasbord of the surreal that borrows liberally from the Brothers Quay, Czech animator Jan Svankmajer, Hieronymous Bosch, Salvador Dali, and a surplus of other cannibalized sources.

This provides one of the wildest, weirdest visual feasts ever committed to film, and The Cell earns a place among such movie mind-trips as 2001: A Space Odyssey, Altered States, What Dreams May Come, and Un Chien Andalou. Is this a good thing? Sure, if all you want is freakazoid eye-candy. If you're looking for emotional depth, substantial plot, and artistic coherence, The Cell is sure to disappoint. The pop-psychology pablum of Mark Protosevich's screenplay would be laughable if it weren't given such somber significance, and Singh's exploitative use of sadomasochistic imagery is repugnant (this movie makes Seven look tame), so you're better off marveling at the nightmare visions that are realized with astonishing potency. The Cell is too shallow to stay in your head for long, but while it's there, it's one hell of a show. --Jeff Shannon

Product Description

5.0 out of 5 stars HIS MIND IS HER PRISON February 17, 2005
{WARNING: There might be some spoilers here!}

First of all, let me start off by stating the obvious: this is not your average suspenseful cop chases killer kind of movie (it has far more substance than that). As well as achieving the understandable squeal or two (often because of grotesque things happening, such as flesh being stretched from suspension and intestines being pulled out), The Cell's visionary special effects is pure eye-candy that will undoubtedly thrill and excite you...

The film at first is divided into two different storylines. You have child therapist, Catherine Deane (played by Jennifer Lopez), who has devoted her life in trying to awaken a young boy by the name of Edward whom has lapsed into a coma. Then there is a swarm of FBI agents and criminal investigators (primarily Peter, played by Vince Vaughn) searching for clues to hunt down a serial killer that drowns his victims (all beautiful blondes), bleaches them to look like dolls once dead and then puts collars on them to make them feel that they belong to him.

Eventually these two storylines merge together...

When the FBI discovers where the suspect Carl (Vincent D'Onofrio) is living they immediately raid his house, but what they find is him lying unconscious on the kitchen floor. They rush him to the hospital and are crushed to learn that he has fallen into a catatonic state that is non-curable due to a mental illness of severe schizophrenia. He, unfortunately, is the only one who knows where his latest victim Julia is, so during the next 40 hours they must figure out where that is before the tank she's captured in fills up with water. The FBI then recruits Catherine to use an experimental device that links the two and enables her to travel within the killer's dark, perverse mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Underrated Masterpiece of a Thriller February 17, 2005
Pathos and Hate; they are about as far apart as two emotions can be, and yet so often the two come hand in hand. Above all it is this aspect of first time director Tarsem's The Cell, and not the stunning visuals, which makes the film's most effective impact. The Cell is not just another case of style over substance as so many have said it to be, but rather an emotional tale of anger, fear and ultimately forgiveness that is told through the use of striking images instead of just dialogue.

The film's central character is Catherine Deane, a child psychologist portrayed by Jennifer Lopez, who has spent a number of months using a brand new experimental technology in an attempt to help a young boy come out of his catatonic state. The boy is the son of the millionaire helping fund the project, and the technology is a device that allows one to enter the mind of another. The film's opening scene takes place in one of these situations as we see Catherine in a desert wasteland trying to make a connection with the child in question, but like her prior attempts it too ultimately ends in failure. Upon this latest failure the boy's father decides to end his son's involvement in the experiment, only to give Catherine a few more months after being convinced otherwise by the designers of the project, Dr. Miriam Kent (Marianne Jean-Baptiste) and Henry West (Dylan Baker). During the film's introduction of Catherine we also get a quick glimpse of her life, or rather her lack of one, as she has engulfed herself with the project to such an extent that she has time for little else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tarsem and J. Lo rule. February 15, 2001
Tarsem Singh the director of The Cell shows that he knows exactly what he's doing when he is behind the camera. This serial killer film is one of the best films of 2000. The plot of this movie has a great hook. The entering of a persons mind by a second person. Jennifer Lopez's character has to enter the mind of a serial killer in order to figure out where a missing girl is before she drowns in his sick trap. The plot isn't all though. The stellar direction courtesy of Tarsem, using a combination of computer effects and elaborate sets, he creates the inner recesses of the mind with a very distinct visual flair. From the disturbing mind of Carl which encompasses a rather surprising setpiece involving a horse, to the serene desert of a little boys mind, the sheer staggering beauty of the images is hard to describe. But on top of this, Tarsem shows an exceptional talent for storytelling also. He cuts between the search for the missing girl, and "J.Lo" searching the mind of Carl with absolute precision. The suspense is excellent, i was unable to turn away from the screen. The acting is rather good in this movie also. Jennifer Lopez is a great actress, she gives a very good performance, juggling multiple incarnations of her character, from a sullen therapist to a leather clad uber-warrior wielding a crossbow. Vince Vaughn is given a typical FBI agent character, and is very convincing in his role. And then there is Vincent D'Onofrio, probably the most underrated actor in hollywood, he has always been great. This is just another example, he is just disturbing, a complete sociopath. Vincent plays him perfectly. This visionary, ultra-entertaining film, strays from the norm and pays for it. People hate it, because they like their serial killers charismatic like Hannibal, not to be completely indecipherable like Carl, that's a real shame. Because this movie has a lot to offer, if given the chance.
