Commandments is a 1997 film from director Daniel Taplitz that plays on the Biblical Ten Commandments. It follows the character of Seth Warner (Aidan Quinn) who recently lost his wife. After Seth's wife dies, his life begins to unravel. His medical career begins to go downhill and his house is quickly falling apart. In an act of defiance, Seth promises to break every single commandment to seek vengeance against God. He blames God for all of his troubles, and believes that by breaking each commandment that God will feel some of the pain that he feels himself. He goes about breaking these commandments very methodically and plans out each Commandment before he breaks them. As the film advances, the audience gets to see the inner workings of Seth's brain, and the pain that he truly feels after his wife passes. This movie is an intriguing look into the relationship that humans have with pain and loss.
