Released:

Rating:
R
Anamorph is a 2007 thriller starring Willem DaFoe, Scott Speedman, Clea DuVall, and Peter Stormare. Stan Aubray (Willem Da Foe) is a weathered NYPD detective who suffers from severe OCD and alcoholism. He is stunned when a serial killer from his past resurfaces, this time with a new approach. It seems the killer is now obsessed with anamorphosis, an art form in which two bodies of work compete to form one cohesive image. Aubray is accompanied by Detective Carl (Scott Speedman) on his hunt for the killer who uses his victims' bodies as props in his artistic anamorphic arrangement. Things become muddled when certain events lead Aubray to look inside himself and make sense out of his strange past. Willem DaFoe provides an amazing performance as a tortured cop. The film was written by Henry S. Miller and Tom Phelan and directed by Miller. Anamorph is a thought-provoking psychological thriller which will have you happily guessing until the very last scenes. Worth watching at least once.moreless

    Director H.S. Miller thinks he's made something broodingly visionary when you're more likely to be aesthetically shaken up by one of Mad magazine's Fold-Ins.
