Product Description

Mena Suvari unforgettably stars as Brandi, a hard-partying, overworked nursing assistant in this delicious, darkly humorous psychological thriller from director Stuart Gordon. Brandi accidentally steers her car into a homeless man, movingly played by Stephen Rea, sending him flying through the windshield. Not wanting to jeopardize a possible job promotion, she chooses not to get him medical help, leaving him clinging to life in her garage. But soon her psyche begins to unravel as captor and captive are pitted against each other in a bloody...even outrageous battle for survival.

The golden age of the exploitation movie was arguably the 1970s, since when this affectionately regarded genre has been on a pretty steady downward slide. The likes of Quentin Tarantino have offered their take on it but haven't stayed strictly true to identity because the Grindhouse movies simply had too big a budget to qualify. Along comes Chicago-born creative horror film director Stuart Gordon who has put his name to such 1980s notables as Re-Animator, From Beyond and Dolls among a number of others not always worthy of mention! On a miniscule budget - and thereby entitling the finished product to warrant 'B' status - he has created a relatively short film at 85 minutes that is actually based on a true story, improbable though it will sound - but then, many exploitation films are based on fact, it's what sparks the idea in the first place. Mena Suvari plays a hard-partying, stressed-out care worker longing for a promotion at the old-peoples home where she works. After a night of drug-taking and general partying, she accidentally hits a homeless man called Thomas who gets stuck in her car's windscreen, indeed it won't spoil anything to mention that he spends the entire length of the film stuck there (hence the title of course). Not wanting to call for emergency services as she is driving under the influence of alcohol and a lot more, Brandi, as she is named, chooses not to get Thomas medical help and instead drives home, parks the car in her garage and leaves him there. Stuck. In her detached state of mind Brandi hopes or expects that Thomas will just die where he is, needless to say he refuses to comply with her wishes!Read more ›

Brandi (Mena Suvari) has been out partying and enjoying herself. Meanwhile, Thomas (Stephen Rea) is not having a good day. He's lost his job and just been evicted, still it could be worse...

Brandi, driving home after too much booze and some substance abuse crashes into Thomas. In a panic she drives home, with Thomas jammed in the windscreen, only to find out when she gets home that he's still alive.

This is an entertaining thriller that delivers something new with an original story and some great moments that will make you cringe and sometimes even laugh at the same time...a dog trying to gnaw on the protruding bones of your shattered legs being a good case in point.

I came across this film completely by accident of course, but it's amazing what you can find on the internet, and I was reluctant to get it at first, because I knew it would be pretty grim, except it sounded fascinating and I wanted to see Mena Suvari in action. What I got was a damn clever thriller that was based on a true story, which doesn't actually surprise me. And they say that truth is stranger than fiction!! Not in this case, it's not. Apparently, in the real life incident, the driver was prosecuted, but I don't know what happened to the victim. In the film, that was hardly going to happen. It was played out with extreme dark humour, (reminded me of the satirical bite of Robocop actually), and I thought Stephen Rea was extraordinary as the man who is 'stuck' in the windscreen. What amazing effects and it didn't even feel far fetched either. It wasn't anyway, since it was based on fact.
What starts off as a grim story about an accident, delves into what really can happen when you refuse to face consequences of actions which you know will land you in trouble. And Mena Suvari was outstanding as the nurse who has one moment of carelessness which changes her life, but it was the nuances in her character as the film goes on that were impressive. Imagine a nurse who discovers a rather darker side to her nature and her psyche goes through a major change. A nurse!! Ironic in itself. And look out for the scene when she goes a bit crazy when she catches her boyfriend with another girl, and she turns violent!! She starts out being the scared woman who's done something awful, then she turns into a kind of captor, for fear of prosecution (and maybe something else), and she's after a promotion as well.

The IMDB list this film as a comedy. Christ, they got that wrong. This film delves deep into the mind of the viewer though a situation which could happen to any of us and questions actions against reactions and the pickle that live can get us into. Here, that pickle is one huge mess of a nightmare on all sides and it's dealt with by perfect craftsmen and incredible ability in front of and behind the camera.

Thomas Bardo(Stephen Rea) is down on his luck, fate has turned its head resulting in a business man homeless and sleeping in the park. Brandi Boski (Mena Suvari) is a care home nurse, great at her job and in line for promotion. After a night celebrating, her world is about to crumble. Bardo takes his chance on a red light, walking across what looked like a clear road. Boski is busy texting whilst driving. The incident occurs. Bardo crashes straight through he windscreen, blood poring all over the car. Boski panics and has to decide how to clear this mess and keep her life on track.

The film roles like a stage production. It's feel and style could be contained in a single space as most of the drama happens at Boski's house as Bardo is left to die in the garage, tied and wrapped in plastic. The script (John Strysik) is accurate and realistic which allows the actors to grow characters which are believable, even in a situation which you might feel, would normally act in a different manner. Until you are in this situation, how do you know how you would react? Stephen Rea is outstanding here, probably his most powerful performance since `The Crying Game'. Mena Suvari (American Beauty) is exceptional, and in my opinion, one of the greatest living actresses of our time; here she does not disappoint in a role which she certainly gets her teeth into.
