Psychological thriller film directed by Marc Forster and written by David Benioff. It stars Ewan McGregor, Ryan Gosling, Bob Hoskins and Naomi Watts. The film represents intense relationships centering on reality, death, love and the afterlife.A nonsense screenplay that loses attraction by the middle of the film as it become more and more strange and bizarre.A voyage only for the director.But the edition is a show appart.

Stay Away

Stay is the type of movie that todays Hollywood loves to produce. Find a couple of likeable stars (not too expensive ones) and put together a slick looking film with a twist ending with enough odd camera moves and flashbacks to try and hide the fact that there is nothing actually worth watching. The film looks and feels like a film students exercise in film techniques he only recently read about and doesnt really comprehend. The story (I refuse to call it plot) involves Ewan McGregor as a psychiatrist with a suicidal patient and a girlfriend who once tried to kill herself. Problem is his patient is so dark and angry we dont care if he kills himself and Naomi Watts (making her second appearance on the list) character is so needy and whiny we want her to die. McGregor worries th...
