Superb study of disturbing subject
on August 6, 2003
This is a superb view of what it's like to be inside the intimate circle of someone afflicted with OCD, obsessive compulsive disorder.
I personally found the use of video to be a stroke of brilliance by the director. You are 'there', experiencing with Sammy Horn (the main character) his compulsion as it progressively takes center stage in his life. The editing again was masterful as it attempts to give the viewer the effect of 'thought flashes' that the mind of someone with OCD experiences.
This is a well written, directed and acted film. The subject matter is disturbing, even more so in the manner that it is presented, but it is a skillful and masterful piece of work. Do not confuse the strong feelings elicited by the subject matter for those you would have with a poor film.
I would recommend this to anyone who deals with someone afflicted with anytype of OCD.
