THE SCRIBBLER

Just finished watching this, and I love it. I am a big fan of low-budget, indie and avant-garde filmmaking. Although small budget films don’t have the luxury of big budget production values; more often than not, smart casting, an enthusiastic director and a savvy crew will produce a really neat story that bigger studios wouldn’t even consider touching, either due to its risky themes or the studio’s ridiculous financing mandate and incapacity to appreciate originality & coolness. The Scribbler is one of those stories and it also happens to be a faithful adaptation of the mind-bending graphic novel of the same name, which is something else I am a big fan of. Not sure how my dad found out about The Scribbler before me, but he referred me to this trailer and it got me amped like no big-budget Hollywood exhibit has all year* — Check it out for yourself:

THE SCRIBBLER follows Suki (Katie Cassidy), a young woman confronting her destructive mental illness using “The Siamese Burn,” an experimental machine designed to eliminate multiple personalities. The closer Suki comes to being “cured,” she’s haunted by a thought… what if the last unwanted identity turns out to be her?

Based on a sci-fi/psychological graphic novel by former political cartoonist Daniel Schaffer. “The Scribbler” is a dark and twisted sci-fi thriller starring Arrow‘s Katie Cassidy, Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s Eliza Dushku and Michelle Trachtenberg, The Big Bang Theory‘s Kunal Nayyar, The Sopranos’ Michael Imperioli and The Rocketeer star Billy Campbell.

The film, which deals with a woman who is confronting her multiple personalities using an experimental process, was shot in 2012 and debuted early this year at a foreign film festival, but has taken a long path to theatrical release.
