    This movie is a masterpiece. It's difficult to describe but it was a very jarring experience watching this. I couldn't fall asleep until 5 AM thinking about it.

    Just released on video, and it showcases the acting talent of Tilda Swinton and Ezra Miller.

    Eva Khatchadourian is trying to piece together her life following the "incident". Once a successful travel writer, she is forced to take whatever job comes her way, which of late is as a clerk in a travel agency. She lives a solitary life as people who know about her situation openly shun her, even to the point of violent actions toward her. She, in turn, fosters that solitary life because of the incident, the aftermath of which has turned her into a meek and scared woman. That incident involved her son Kevin Khatchadourian, who is now approaching his eighteenth birthday. Eva and Kevin have always had a troubled relationship, even when he was an infant. Whatever troubles he saw, Franklin, Eva's complacent husband, just attributed it to Kevin being a typical boy. The incident may be seen by both Kevin and Eva as his ultimate act in defiance against his mother. Written by Huggo

    I started to read the book but I couldn't get through the first chapter. Maybe I'll give it another chance

    Seems appropriate in light of the shooting in Colorado. I wonder if his mother went thru the same experience raising this "monster"

    I'm in total agreement. Another film that very much fits that sentiment would be a Korean film called Old Boy. You must see this, if you haven't already! icon_surprised.gif
