Live Animals which I really liked. Now it's time for Roman, starring Lucky McKee, Kristen Bell, and Nectar Rose. This was one crazy-ass movie. I'm still thinking about it a couple of days later, sort of unsure what to make of it.
Roman is basically a loner, who lives in a sparse apartment with no TV. His entertainment basically consists of watching out his front window, mainly following the activities of a girl that he deems Isis (Bell). Crazily enough, one time he's drinking some brews up on the roof, and she joins him. They start to kindle a bit of a relationship, but Roman's (McKee) obsession already runs a little too deep. The entrance of another love interest, the nymph-like Eva (Rose) brings more complications.
It's hard to say too much about this movie without giving things away. His "treatment" (for lack of a better word) of Isis is more bizarre than much of what I've seen in recent horror. It was part Psycho and part Seven and just all-around crazypants. The Eva character started to get on my nerves after a while with her constant chatter and wild vegetation outfits, but I sort of understand where they were going with that.
Roman was an all around solid movie. I didn't love it, per se, but it was definitely interesting and had a lot going for it. The music was kind of bizarre, but it helped me rediscover a song my grandma used to sing to me. It's no classic, but solidly creepy and worth checking out.
