Format: DVD
Eye of the Beholder is the kind of film that provokes an odd reaction - it's not actually the total failure most critics claim, but it doesn't work. As with the previous French version of Marc Behm's thriller, Mortelle Randonnee (itself much loved by critics but far more problematic), the premise is good - an emotionally damaged surveillance expert covers up the serial murders of an even more damaged young woman he convinces himself is his long-dead daughter. Unfortunately Ewan McGregor's casting in the male lead pretty much kills the film at birth because he's just too young - the part needs to be a middle-aged man so that the confusion between the girl and his daughter is more understandable. As the object of his obsession Ashley Judd doesn't do the film any favours either, neither looking nor feeling right. But there's an undeniable vision to the film, even if it proves that striking visual composition and the odd ingenious bit of filmmaking is no compensation for human feeling and genuine empathy and involvement. Maybe it'll be a case of third time lucky for the next person to adapt the novel....

I've read many negative reviews for 'Eye Of The Beholder', but I personally thought it to be something refreshingly different. I certainly haven't seen many movies like this.

An exciting and enjoyable thriller. 'Eye Of The Beholder' casts Ewan McGregor as 'the eye', an isolated and rather odd British Intelligence officer who is signed to the case of the beautiful and mysterious Joanna Eris (played by Ashley Judd). Although accused only of blackmailing a British official senior, she is guilty of far more than that. It's up-to 'the eye' to shadow her and discover more about the woman who is causally committing murder after murder. Both Ewan McGregor and Ashley Judd both give good performances in what are two interesting characters.

I can see why some people might not like this film, it is odd one (admittedly a bit silly at times) but a very original work. On the other hand, I did enjoy 'Eye Of The Beholder' and found it an overall intelligent film with an intriguing plot.

A rare kind of film: original (to me, anyway - I hadn't seen much or anything like it before), unexpected, unconventional and unapologetic. Nothing is clear-cut and you're never quite sure who is 'good' or 'bad'.

Great performances and drags you into its world fast, keeping you there.

Eye Of The Beholder is a film I chanced across a couple of years ago in a Global video store.
After watching it the first time I rented it another 3 times before finally buying the rental version form the store!
Starring Ashley Judd and Ewan Macgregor, this is a tale of obsession, irrational obsession, of loss and love. It's a story of people, of scars, of life and survival. It's one of the most amazing films I've ever seen. Not just because of the grade A acting and direction, but also as a technical achievenment.
If you're an admirer of David Fincher's elaborate camera pans and trickery, you might also like to watch this, even as a purely technical film it's remarkable. The fades, editing and camerawork is utterly masterful. The soundtrack is perfect. It's an experience more than a mere story. I cannot reccomend this DVD enough.
For those who have ever felt loss, this is a movie that can touch you and inspire you with Hope.

"I wish you love."

I am crazy about Ashley Judd, a women who is beautiful even when she cries or sad! A rare quality.

The film is about obsession, deception and really enjoyable to watch.
