Overview

Wristcutters: A Love Story

Relegated to a forlorn afterlife of unsmiling lost souls and melancholy drifters as a result of committing suicide in the mortal realm, a heartbroken young man sets out to find the girl who inspired his final act of self-destruction after learning that she too has taken her own life in director Goran Dukic's adaptation of Etgar Keret's darkly comic novella Kneller's Happy Campers. A likeable young man despite his depressive disposition, Zia (Patrick Fugit) puts blade to wrist only to find that the pain of life doesn't end with the coming of death. Now trapped in a bleak metaphysical landscape populated entirely by suicide victims blearily searching for the joys that eluded them in the physical realm, Zia soon learns that the love is one of the latest arrivals in the dreary land of the dead. As Zia sets out to locate his ill-fated former companion and experience the joys that eluded the couple in life, he is joined in his quest by a lovelorn Russian rocker named Eugene (Shea Wigham) and an accidental tourist named Mikal (Shannyn Sossamon), who's looking for a way out of the sorrowful stir.

This was probably my favorite movie of the lousy 2007 season. A world populated with suicides is just like ours, only slightly worse. All the floors are dirty, all the clothes wrinkled. All jobs suck and no one can physically smile. It's a roadtrip movie complete with happy ending!

I remember seeing billboards advertising this movie months ago. I would drive past them and think to myself: what sort of bazaar crap is this "wrist cutters" thing? Well some weeks later I browsing some illicit websites looking for a new and exciting film to watch (completed depressed by the fact that I felt like I could tell you the plot of any new film just from the movie poster) and I happened upon a link to this movie... After watching the film I realized that I couldn't have more wrong about this film Wristcutters surprised and delighted me. It has inventive concepts, great characters, and smart humor. (plus Tom Waits cast perfectly) After seeing it the only question I had was: When can I buy this on DVD?

As a teenage male, I am not savvy to many love stories. But once in a while, there's one that just comes at you with... well, in this case a razor blade. I loved this movie. It was funny, and a little sad at the same time. I love Tom Waits, so Knellers role was pretty awesome but Eugene was my favorite character, being that Gogol Bordello is one of my favorite bands. Speaking of which, I'm going to see Gogol Bordello soon, Sept. the 29th to be exact. I gave it a 4 because it wasn't outstanding, like No Country for Old Men, or Atonement. It had a good script, excellent plot line, and well developed characters. And thank god for that ending, I wanted Zia to be happy in the end. I will definitely recommend this and will end up buying it soon.
