Plot
The Voices makes fun of schizophrenia... respectfully. Ryan Reynold’s character can be awkward when he’s not taking his pills, and he can be pretty damn dangerous. His dog and cat talk to him. They’re his best friends. He wants to date a colleague and ends up killing her. Gore and hilarity ensue. This film is hysterically funny and equally frightening for the same reasons.
What feels like a lighthearted comedy soon turns into a violent movie, as the protagonist’s condition worsens. We see what he sees and hear what he hears, but then we are presented with a much darker, juxtaposed reality. Jerry is in denial. He sees butterflies where we see blood and guts. If capital punishment doesn’t convince you that killing is wrong, this movie will.
The production design is excellent; hand in hand with neat photography and perfect lighting, resulting in nice patterns, color palettes, ambiances and textures. The film looks really good. There is a plastic aesthetic to it that contrasts with the red stuff. You won’t be able to take your eyes away from this masterpiece, not even to take a leak. It’s intoxicating!
