Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is perhaps the strangest road movie you will ever see. It takes place in a parallel world where people end up after committing suicide. The same as this world but a little worse. Nobody smiles, jobs are all mundane, there are no stars in the night sky and no colour in the flowers. Zia, played by Patrick Fugit, offed himself because of an old girlfriend. Then he finds out she killed herself a month after him - so should be somewhere in purgatory too. And so he sets off to find her, in the company of a crazy Russian rock musician and girl hitcher they pick up along the way. They drive around in a beat up old car, with a black hole under the passenger seat, and along the way bump into Tom Waits. I don't really care what his character is supposed to be because as usual its really just Tom Waits.

This is an impressive premise for a movie - and its an extremely quirky affair. I found it pretty difficult to engage with though on anything other than a superficial level, so when it got the the end I found I didn't really much care what happened to the characters. There are moments of some black humour in the movie but calling it a comedy would be stretching things (and I know it has been described as a comedy or even a romantic comedy). You may smile knowingly but you will not guffaw or laugh heartily. Other than that it is a little slice of indie bleakness. Stylishly done but dragging a bit in the middle.

An interesting film but ultimately for me an unsatisfying one.

Wristcutters: A Love Story (2007), is written and directed by Goran Dukic and stars Patrick Fugit and Shannyn Sossamon. It is set in a strange afterlife way station that has been reserved for people who have committed suicide.

After Zia (Patrick Fugit) commits suicide by cutting his wrists, he finds himself in an afterlife limbo that is much the same as his former reality, just slightly worse: the colour is dim, there are no flowers, and no one can smile. This strange realm is populated by people who have committed suicide, such as Eugene (Shea Whigham), a Russian rocker who lives with his mother, father, and brother (all suicide victims). Much of the movie was shot on super-16 colour infrared film, which was produced specially by Kodak. The colour-shifts enhance the feel of the parallel world and add an unusual visual beauty. As the subject matter would suggest, this is no side splitting comedy, but it is a light hearted (and rather weird) journey through a bizarre tale of love, friendship, and the afterlife.

I can certainly see why this film has won so many awards; it certainly has buckets of originality. For example, it is the first film that I've seen that makes light of suicide. It uses relatively unknown actors, and a few others beside. Whether you'll like it or not depends largely on your taste. If you are bored with the usual hollywood, no-brain cells required blockbuster, I believe, like me you'll find this film a breath of, well not fresh, but certainly original air. It's not perfect, it doesn't always make sense, but it is certainly one for the collection.

I watched this a year ago at a friend's house and when I couldn't find it in HMV or any physical shop had to get it when it was marked down by almost a half. Love(ly) story, beautifully shot and the opening sequence to Tom Waits is all you need to see to be hooked til the end of the film. It's also nice that it isn't extremely long but still manages to cover a lot of ground without feeling rushed at all; more big-budget productions sometimes feel like they are long simply because they can be, rather than because it furthers what they're trying to do with the content of the movie.

From the title I expected this to be a little depressing but it is actually pretty funny, quite light-hearted entertainment that is different to other mainstream movies of the roadtrip/love story genre.

Good performances from the cast and a fun script make this film one to definitley look out for.

3/5

Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
'Wristcutters' premise is genuinely original: If one commits suicide, one is sent to a particularly low-rent afterlife, a cross between depression-era America and 1970s Soviet Russia. No-one can smile, the foods crap, and Joy Division is on the pub jukebox. When our protagonist arrives, he embarks on a journey to find an erstwhile girlfriend, who has also topped herself.

Thereafter, the film raises more questions than it attempts to answer: Whilst I couldn't really grasp what the director was trying to say in the film, one did wonder why, for instance, the afterlife is exclusively populated by white Americans: Is God a segregationist or something?

However, despite the metaphysical trappings, the film quickly becomes a pretty generic US indie movie - essentially it's the usual trio of grungy hipsters on the usual road trip, mumbling to each other as usual to the usual eclectic soundtrack. In this context,even a cameo from Tom Waits just seems like another independent movie cliche.

Overall then, and unsatisfying film: It raises big questions about morality and mortality, but then fails to discuss those questions: 'Wristcutters' uses the independent aesthetic to present itself as having more depth than it actually possesses. The ending is the big giveaway: a piece of pure Hollywood schmaltz that shows the film as the piece of lightweight fluff it, at heart, is.
