Editorial Reviews

Life is a trip, but the afterlife is one hell of a ride. Zia, distraught over breaking up with his girlfriend, decides to end it all. Unfortunately, he discovers that there is no real ending, only a run-down afterlife that is strikingly similar to his old one, just a bit worse. Discovering that his ex-girlfriend has also "offed" herself, he sets out on a road trip, with his Russian rocker friend, to find her. Their journey takes them through an absurd purgatory where they discover that being dead doesn't mean you have to stop livin'!

Customer Reviews

(A world just like this one only worse).
William Poe
And I follow it up with, "No no, it's a really good film. It's a love story. With a lot of dark humor."
K. Knolls
Definitely one of the best under the radar movies that I have ever seen.

Most romantic comedies take place in... you know, the world of the living. They rarely star dead people. And not suicides, either.

But "Wristcutters: A Love Story" is not going to be tied down by that. This delicious, dark little cult film is about people who have committed suicide, and are now stuck in a limbo zone that is just like the living world, but less appealing. It's also dark, funny and poignant -- everything you want in a very original little indie movie.

Because of a breakup, Zia (Patrick Fugit) has decided that life is no longer worth living. He cleans his house, slits his wrists -- and finds himself in a strange twilight-zone with no sunshine, smiles, or appetizing food, and entirely populated by suicides -- think a Midwestern small town, but more depressing. He eventually gets a job, a nasty roommate, and befriends Eugene (Shea Whigham) a likably bombastic Russian rocker.

But then Zia learns from a new suicide that his girlfriend, Desiree (Leslie Bibb) has also offed herself. So he and Eugene bundle into Eugene's horrible old car, and start a road trip to find her -- picking up the pretty, feisty Mikal (Shannyn Sossamon), who says she's been placed there mistakenly. The odd trio rattles through this suicide world, until they stumble across a strange camp in the wilderness...

I first heard about "Wristcutters" a long while ago, on myspace -- but in the months that followed, it just sort of floated in a limbo of its own. Pretty frustrating, but Goran Dukic actually makes it worth waiting for -- it's a quirky and dark indie comedy, a tragedy, and a love story all in one.

As you can probably guess, the movie's main message is that you should live a life worth enjoying, and love someone worth loving.

Thinking about suicide? Think again. And watch WRISTCUTTERS: A LOVE STORY before you pull out that razor blade, swallow those pills, or pop that gun barrel into your mouth. The world beyond is not what you want!

Zia (Patrick Fugit) is so depressed about his girlfriend leaving him, he feels he cannot go on. One slit of the wrists and it's bye-bye boy. But what lay beyond for Zia? Well, it ain't any prettier. In fact, it's downright depressing. No laughter. No smiles. An empty road full of empty lives lay ahead. Or so it seems.

Zia runs into another lost soul named Eugene (Shea Whigham, Tigerland) who has a car and the two spark up an unusual relationship. Zia pines only for his lost love Desiree (Leslie Bibb, Talladega Nights) while Eugene wanders aimlessly (or so it seems) through this netherworld. That is, until Zia finds out that Desiree has committed suicide, too! Yes! Love cannot be denied, even in this depressing purgatory. But how to find her? Of course. Road trip! Zia and Eugene set out to find Desiree but run into several speed-bumps. Headlights that don't work. No air conditioning. And even a black hole that exists under the passenger's seat that swallows up sunglasses or anything else dropped in its direction. But none of this prepares Zia for his run-in with Mikal (Shannyn Sossamon, Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang), another lost soul that they find hitchhiking along an empty road.

This film goes far beyond the short story "Neller's Happy Campers" by Etgar Keret found in The Bus Driver Who Wanted To Be God & Other Stories. It is about the weird world that suicides go to. (A world just like this one only worse).
You will see some strange things on the journey you take in this film with the characters.
The acting is excellent.
The soundtrack ranges from the otherworldly to Eskimo throat singing. (You've got to hear it)
It is a very dark comedy but has a surprisingly light touch and a goofy feel-good style. It is hard to describe. It is like "Crossroads" meets "Road Warrior" but everybody is already dead.

A heartwarming romantic comedy that's about the afterworld for those who commit suicide and wind up in a gloomier world than our own. The movie is funny and poignant and, although, offensive to just about every group of people, it's light and hopeful at the same time. A gem of a movie and a definitely deserving of its Sundance win.

Wristcutters: A Love Story (Goran Dukic, 2006)

I was somehow unaware until the main titles were rolling on Wristcutters: A Love Story that it was based on Etgar Keret's graphic novel Pizzeria Kamikaze, which has been on my list of stuff to go digging for at the library for just about ever. So as soon as the movie was over, I went digging, and so I'll be comparing the two side by side (see below for PK review), and pretty much by definition there's going to be a lot of comparing of the two. Especially where a graphic novel adaptation is concerned, I'm always expecting slavish devotion to the source material (unless stuff goes on the novel it's simply not possible to film without millions of dollars' worth of special effects, unless you're Zack Snyder). And somehow, despite knowing this will never happen, I always end up wondering to myself what on earth director X and screenwriter Y were thinking when they decided to change detail Z, which doesn't save time or money, but ends up confusing the hell out of the viewer. I got a lot more of that in Wristcutters; it was only after reading Pizzeria Kamikaze that a few quirks in the personalities of the characters made sense. (I will give Dukic one huge bonus, though, for making Eugene into a failed musician, because this movie's soundtrack is everything that so many crappy indie soundtracks have tried to be recently and failed.)

Plot: depressed emo kid Zia (Deadbirds' Patrick Fugit), whose girlfriend has just broken up with him, decides to kill himself. He succeeds, and when he wakes up in the afterlife, "it's a lot like Tel Aviv, only a little bit worse." He finds himself a job at Pizzeria Kamikaze, whose logo is wonderful, and PK's owner helps him find a place to live.
