Wristcutters – A Love Story

The other night I watched Wristcutters, not because I really wanted to but since there was nothing worth watching I watched it. I must admit it was, in my opinion, one of the best movies I have seen in a long time.

The movie directed by Goran Dukic is a strangely entertaining and wonderfully paced movie. It is about a young man, distraught after breaking up with his girlfriend, decides to commit suicide and discovers that life in “purgatory” is not any better than the life he was living in the “real world”. Along the way he discovers his purpose, his true relations with the ex-girlfriend, and finally his unexpected attraction to new girl, who helps him find his way back to where he belonged in the first place.

It’s amazing, normally most stories told, leave gaps or alot of unanswered questions but not this story. Dukic was able to clarify and address every turn in the story and while the movie was filmed with no frills or special effects, it delivered the synopsis right down to the core.

I highly recommend the movie on DVD, also check your Comcast on Demand, it may still be playing in some states under the Free Movies category.

Lionsgate production. Starring: Patrick Fugit, Shannyn Sossamon, Shea Whigham.

  1. What an original movie this was. The acting was very "mellow" but what do you expect when all the actors have to play in the "dead zone" I found it very creative and it felt like i was reading a book, it kept me wanting to see what would hapen next. Talk about getting sucked into the movie. Watch this movie if you can. Oh, yeah there's something about the girl in this movie… she's hot
