Editorial Reviews

Family man George Grieves (Tom Cavanagh of TV's Ed and Love Monkey) checks into Mt. Abadon Hospital for a routine procedure. When he awakens from his anesthesia, something is terribly wrong...with George...with the hospital...and especially with the shuttered East Ward, an eerie lair of secrets, sex and surgical terrors. Raw Feed presents the fear-drenched psychological thriller Sublime, directed by Tony Krantz (executive producer of 24) from a screenplay by Emmy Award winner Erik Jendresen (Band of Brothers). In the tradition of cinema's classic tales of suspense, Sublime will keep you guessing as its puzzle pieces fall into place, and leave you stunned by its astounding conclusion. Graphic, bold, sexual and utterly horrifying, Sublime explores what happens when what you fear becomes real.

I am a physician who has dealt with people going through similar experiences. This movie is quite thought provoking in this regard. I tend to agree with a prior reviewer that those who trash it are either looking for a slash movie or do not have the intelligence to realize the implications of this movie. This movie is quite deep on a number of levels. The acting is excellent, the photography is excellent, the plot is intriguing and thought provoking. I would highly recommend it to people who like to do some thinking while watching movies. And to those who watch a lot of movies and enjoy something out of the ordinary. Exraordinary in fact.

Due to the the intensity of the reaction to this film by fans of the horror genre (who are so disturbed as to spoil the story in their reviews) I thought I'd throw this in, for what it's worth:

SUBLIME was an experiment on nearly every level. Raw Feed is a Warner Bros. experiment to make "horror" films within the BROADEST definition of the genre. Films designed to be released directly to DVD.

John Shiban, Tony Krantz and Daniel Myrick would each make a film in 15 days for a budget of roughly 1.5 million dollars. Any one of them essentially could do whatever they wanted to do - to play into the genre, to satirize it, to bend it. Mr. Krantz's notion was to take the present atmosphere of fear and doubt that has pervaded our world; the very real statistics about "health care"; and the horror of the Terry Schiavo case, and make a movie.

My involvement in the film came out of my close friendship with Tony. Inspired by an Ambrose Bierce short story "An Occurence at Owl Creek Bridge"...the mystery of coma consciousness...the idea that when you close your eyes, your visual experience is limited to what you can remember...we crafted the script.


Trying to capture our version of a fear-and-incident-inspired "coma consciousness" led to the film's intentionally languorous and lurid pace. It was a specific choice. Right or wrong, we were determined to stay true to George's vision: George is stuck in a 10-month-plus Persistent Vegetative State within which all of the things that he worries about manifest.

For what it's worth, I enjoyed Sublime. Was it a tad too long....absolutely, but that is a forgivable point. I believe that this film is getting bad reviews primarily because it was marketed to the wrong crowd. I think that had this film been presented as a psychological thriller with some supernatural overtones, I think it would have been received much better.

The acting is quite impressive, and so is the writing and cinematography. Kudos to all of the individuals who were involved in the making of this film as I find that they have all gone above and beyond their call of duty considering the time and budgetary challenges that this movie presented.

I recommend this film to anyone who enjoys stories which challenge you and make you think and talk about what you just saw. If movies like Memento, Insomnia, Jacob's Ladder and anything that Lynch or Cronenberg have made adornes your DVD collection, then Sublime will make a good addition!

This movie has many layers to it and the director and writer spend almost 2 hours trying to piece the layers together into a coherent story of George's (Cavanagh) life/ordeal through flashbacks/memories and so on. The story is slow paced and borders on the bizarre at times throughout the movie. At his 40th birthday party the day before his colonoscopy his family and friends tell him of the horrors of medical mistakes and it puts George's mind in overdrive with worries. Well you know what happens and it sets off a chain reaction of bizarre events that plague George and his family. For those who are looking for medical accuracy, you'll find plenty of liberties taken on the medical side of the story and they stray from what would be considered standard practices.The acting is good, but the direction, writing and pacing take from what could have been a great movie and turns it into an average movie.

Rating 0 to 5 stars

Story = 3 It was to slow paced and gets bizarre at times.
Direction = 2.5 I felt the director and writer tried to cram to much into the story and the pacing and lengh of time hurt the movie.
Acting = 4 Was very good across the board with primary and secondary characters.
Suspence/tension = 3.7 This movie has both and its palatable.
Violence = Yes, but not over the top nor very graphic.
Gore = 3+ Some scenes of surgery and torture.
Sex/Nudity = Yes, but only the back of Zoe's (Coiro) upper torso.
Foul Language = Yes, all the big 4 letter ones, but not in every sentence.
Entertainment Value = 2 to 3 stars. Its slow paced and almost 2 hours long without a lot of action. It may be hard to follow for some with its bizarre scenes and storyline.
