Reclusive illustrator of childrens' books Wade Mixon(Robert Picardo) leads a tortured existance, his world a collage of fantasy and reality constantly blurred. A traumatic event from his childhood consumes him and continues to influence his actions many years later. Then, the prospect of love comes calling at his door. Can Wade exorcise his real and imaginary demons before they destroy him and those around him?...
The previous reviewer is quite right. It would be difficult to reveal too much of the plot of this mind bending psychological thriller without spoiling it for others. I will say that after it had finished, I did have the slight feeling that, clever though it was, Sensored is slightly less than the sum of its parts.
That is a minor quibble however, as the film is a very clever, thought provoking affair, unfairly compared to Saw in some reviews I have read, it's more a cerebral take on 'Nightmares In A Damaged Brain', if one must compare it to horrors from the past.
One thing is for sure, and that is that Robert Picardo carries the film with a superb, multi-faceted performance that is both heartbreaking and chilling by turns.
I was slighly disappointed by the lack of any extras on this release, as this is one film I would have liked a directors commentary for. The film itself is well worth the purchase though, as it is a very interesting study into the inner workings of a tortured mind. 4 out of 5.
