Winona Ryder is Martine, a playwright who’s new play is about to premiere in New York. But before the curtain goes up she finds herself plagued by visions and dreams of being stalked by a mysterious man (James Franco). She can’t decide if she is at the centre of a manipulative plot, or simply losing her grip on reality. The Letter is an intriguing psychological thriller that blurs the lines of reality and imagination.

This is not a fast-food kind of film,(which I think is why it is getting so many negative reviews here) but definitely one that asks you enter into it and absorb it fully from the moment you press play.
It has an incredibly unsettling vibe which only increases as the movie proceeds. The viewer, like Winona Ryder's character feels half awake , half asleep, stuck in some kind of state between the two. The plot builds slowly and intriguingly but there is a very clear explanation for Ryder's paranoid and severe mental stress which is revealed. So if you like picking up clues and trying to work things out along the way, this leaves you so much room for that.
There are haunting images, the weight and darkness subsides in spite of the rays of light that glimmer through, it will have you shifting uncomfortable in your seat and Franco & Ryder's chemistry is really engaging.
Visually and cinematically , this is a stunning film, faces fill the screen as you watch the dynamics of relationships at play, the psychology of people both manipulate, hypnotise and shatter. We are invited very intimately into the mind of a woman who feels like she is about to break at any moment. A brilliant jigsaw of a piece with an utterly mesmerising performance by Ryder, that will resonate and echo with you , long after you have finished watching.

This is a terrible film. I can only assume James Franco had a day or two to spare inbetween making proper films, and that Winona Ryder had no work at all. I more or less made it through half the DVD, but have absolutely no idea what the story was about, nor what the director was trying to say, assuming he actually HAD a point and wasn't just attempting to make some very high brow art house film full of symbolism understandable only to him, but without the talent to do so. Much of the story (such as it was) seemed to revolve around poorly shot dream sequences (on a hand held video camera by the looks of it) which may or may not have been true concerning James Franco's character maybe stalking Winona Ryder's who was also writing a totally nonsensical play of her own....and I still have no idea what was supposedly real, nor do I care.
I wish I were able to give a more in depth analysis of Obsessed, but I can't as I was no wiser at the end than I was at the beginning, all I can say is please do not waste your time or money watching this film, you'll only regret it!

I normally give a film a chance, and try to look on the positive side, but I can't find anything positive to say about this one.I'm sorry, but t his is without doubt one of the most boring, depressing films I have ever watched,and I've watched some rubbish films in my time! The central character has lost her will to live. You will too if you watch the film all the way through!

Sorry but I just couldn't get into this film. Soooo slow and all over the place. Stuck it out for a while to try to understand what was going on, but gave up in the end and didn't watch anymore.
