Mickey is about to get his big break as an amateur filmmaker, from a serial killer who turns him and his camera into ‘the perfect witness’.
User Reviews: Wow!!! This is what Indie films should be. I didn’t know what to expect going in but was totally on the edge of my seat the whole way through! It was sort of disturbing but in a very real, can’t look away, can’t wait for what will happen next sense. The two main characters, Mickey (Wes Bentley) and James Lemac (newcomer Mark Borkowski) are locked in a psychological cat and mouse as Mickey, a documentary filmmaker, hatches a crazy plan to blackmail and film James, a serial killer, for just a few days and then turn him into the police. One of the coolest things is that we don’t really see the police in this film. We know they must be out there searching but we stay with the two main characters and just keep delving deeper and deeper into their psychology, morality and obsession. Every time you think you get to breathe, the air gets sucked right back out of you and there’s a new crazy plot twist. The acting was really subtle (with Borkowski capable of erupting at a moment’s notice) and the dark, edgy feel to the cinematography/directing made it really stand out as a risk-taking, no holds barred independent film. One particular murder scene was one of the most emotionally disturbing and visceral 5 minutes I’ve watched in a long time…wouldn’t be surprised if this was a love/hate film for people because it gets under your skin and takes so many chances but I’m firmly on the side of loving it! It was clear the filmmakers wanted to be relentless with their audience so be prepared…
