Great movie !! :D
The first shot after the credits of "Secret Window" is an elaborate one. It begins with a view across a lake to a rustic cabin. Then the camera moves smoothly in to the shore, and across the grounds, and in through a window of the cabin, and it regards various rooms before closing in on a large mirror that reflects a man asleep on a couch. The framing narrows until we no longer see the sides of the mirror, only the image. And then we realize we aren't looking at a reflection but are in fact now in the real room. Not possible logically, but this through-the-lookingglass shot, along with a wide-brimmed black hat and some Pall Mall cigarettes, are the only slight ripples in the smooth surface of the movie's realism.
Secret Window is a under-rated movie of 2004, but it...
Secret Window is a under-rated movie of 2004, but it is an enjoyable film none the less, tense and stylish and full of Johnny Depp. Its not the greatest movie in the world but it is well worth a watch. My rating 8 out of 10 :-D
Secret Window Bluray
I bought this BLU-RAY because it was a bargain and I like Johnny Depp. This is a very entertaining film with a fantastic twist. I stopped short of giving it top marks because the end is a bit lame.
Really creepy thriller with the excellent Johnny Depp as a writer at the end of his tether and John Turturro as a mysterious stranger in a black hat who starts to plague his life. The menacing music by Philip Glass adds much to the tension.
Secret Window (DVD)
Great thriller, Johnny Depp plays a lonely, depressed and nearly divorced writer. He appears to be pursued by a psycho fellow writer who claims he stole one of his books storylines. But all is revealed at the end. Well worth a look.
