great movie (by dgrobinson-1)
I loved this movie.I thought the character played by John Turturro was about coming to terms with the death of his wife. His wife dies in a random way, and we want there to be some purpose for every thing in life. Sometimes, there isn't a purpose.Harry John Turturro copes with the loss of his wife in his own way, burying his grief under layers of denial.The movie is about him coming face to face with that denial.I give this movie 9.5 out of 10, if only because it was lacking some production value that more money would have given it.The movie went into distribution hell after completion. <more>
I'm glad that it has surfaced in DVD so that others may enjoy it.
What is real and what is illusion?... (by MarieGabrielle)
This film takes a few viewings, and you will still be puzzling over the theme. John Turturro is Harry Cain, a mall security guard mourning the death of his wife.The film is very visual the hotel in Montana was filmed by a renowned Kubrick photographer Some scenes are ominous, and may remind you of "The Shining". The winter environment, Harry's work as an anonymous security guard, all seem to infer his alienation from reality. Also the house across the street, which he begins to fixate on, believing he saw his wife go into the house. Is he hallucinating, or is this really <more>
happening?.The film starts slow, but is suspenseful and atmospheric. If you like psychological drama, you will truly enjoy this film. 9/10
had me going from the opening scene (by aquietzone)
This is by far one of the greatest "understated" thrillers of all time...every scene, gesture, bit of dialog seemed to gnaw at me, draw me into a strange feeling that no matter what happens, the feeling of alienation will not go away...yes, there are one or two coincidences that seem a little too much, but if you just flow with it, you will enjoy it without having to know all the answers or have every loose end tied up for you..the photography is first rate, the atmosphere intense, and the acting is refreshingly real for a change....the movie scared me on a level I never <more>
expected....I highly recommend this move..some of the reviewers who trashed this movie probably just need to see explosions, bullets flying and chase scenes to be in suspense.....go see it!
The best thriller I've seen in a long time. Good acting, good cinematography, good idea! (by Ramden)
Unlike other "some-guy-killed-my-wife-and-I-need-revenge-movies" Nicolas Winding Refn doesn't make the mistake of turning this into a semi action movie Like in the end of Insomnia . He lets Harry Caine Brilliantly portrayed by John Turturro proceed gradually forward in slow pace. There is no rush to get to the end and to the killer. Even with the slow pace it never becomes a dull movie because you constantly feel a certain unease. The answer to his his wife's death is lurking somewhere beneath the surface. The answer to his wife's death, however, is the only weak link. <more>
Besides from that we are dealing with a movie that is unique. Of course you can point your finger and say that you've some similar scenes in other movies. But you cannot do anything original on film anymore, you can just do it in an original way. All in all a great movie.
"The searching-out and thorough investigation of truth ought to be the primary study of man." - CiceroDirector Nicolas Refn's first English language film, "Fear X" is an intermittently interesting psychological thriller which stars actor John Turturro as a lowly security guard struggling to cope with the murder of his wife. The film adopts a muted tone, observing from a distance as a grieving Turturro devotes his entire life to finding his wife's killer. But as Turturro scours security footage, interviews suspects and tracks down leads, it becomes increasingly <more>
apparent that Refn is uninterested in conventional "mystery movie" dynamics. Instead, Refn turns Turturro's quest into something more existential; man's inability to recover the past, to fully know another human being, to ever map all mysteries and to ever know the full, unvarnished truth. Turturro's therefore on an ontological mission, but reality never becomes clearer to him. What's thus most interesting about "Fear X" literally, "Fear What?", a fear of the unknown is the way clues and characters are stumbled upon which may or may not be clues, and who may or may not be relevant characters. By the film's end you are given enough material to piece together at least three possibilities regarding the disappearance of Turturro's wife, but the truth remains tantalizingly obscured. Most criticise "Fear X" for its "open ending", but there's nothing wrong with ambiguity. Ignoring the fact that Refn's ending isn't as ambiguous as it is made out to be Turturro's wife was the victim of, take your pick: misidentification, revenge, random chance, or a scorned secret lover , the real problem is that, though the film features some brilliant sequences, by its second half "Fear X" begins to feel derivative of more well known films. For example, Refn's shots of Turturro rummaging through security footage recall Antonioni's own ontological mystery movie, "Blow Up", which featured another confused hero fumbling through image banks. "Fear X" also recalls De Palma's "Blow Out", itself a homage of "Blow Up", whilst Refn's gracefully shot "mall sequences" recall the gliding cameras and prowled malls of De Palma's "Body Double". Later, unsettling shots of hotels and elevators recall "Barton Fink" again with Turturro and "The Shining", whilst the film's plot recalls "The Pledge", "Session 9", "Birth" and Dumont's "Humanity". "Fear X's" tone also strongly resembles both that of Kubrick's filmography, and modern Kubrick imitators Dumont, Haneke, Antonio Campos . The film simply isn't as esoteric as it pretends to be. Still, films like "Fear X" are rare, and it does enough things right to forgive its weak climax and cribbed style. 8/10 – Worth one viewing.
After seeing Pusher and Bleeder both outstanding films in there genre, i got my hands on Fear X, i didn't knew it was Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn until i was browsing imdb.So yea! was expecting to see a good film, saw some lame comments about "what is this for movie" and the usual comments with lack of knowing what "good" film is. But the majority seems to feel it was a creeper, and i tell you, IT IS! Fear X is a real silent Thriller like Pusher, outstanding acting with everyone who's in the cast. Excellent creepy music throwout the whole movie, i recommend <more>
"high volume - dolby surround" :- See it!Cheers : 8/10
This is a brilliant horror movie. The kind of movie Edgar Allan Poe would have made had he been alive. Absolutely astonishingly scary and suspenseful. The story and amazing plot is so twisted and heartbreaking. The Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn can be extremely content with this movie. I live in the same district of Copenhagen as him, by the way . Anyway, that´s not why I´m praising the movie. Us danes usually do not praise each other. I just think it is so so brilliant. One of the best movie experiences I have had in years. Makes you think of Japanese movies such as <more>
"Tetsuo", "The Ring" and "Dark Water". Those who compare with Lynch Bo Green Jensen danish poet and journalist wrote that the ending is too much like David Lynch should consider that "Fear X" is probably better than anything Lynch have made. At least, it is a more mature work.
