The Voices ★★★

Director: Marjane Satrapi

Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Anna Kendrick, Gemma Arterton, Jacki Weaver

A man who is likeable but an outcast amongst the outside world finds himself in trouble when things start to go wrong.

Jerry works in a factory that builds bathtubs; he also has conversations with a cat named Mr. Whiskers and a dog named Busco who are his best friends. But one day he plucks up the courage to pursue a relationship with a work colleague and that’s when things start to take a turn and begin to go wrong. That one night is the beginning of a downwards spiral for him. He at that point, goes on a killing spree and starts to struggle with his morals and with what he believes in what is right and wrong.

It’s good to see Ryan Reynolds play a character that’s different from anything he’s played before. All the rest of the cast also put in good performances.

The film shows how mental illness can affect a person and bring them to kill a person.

It might not be a film for everyone. It’s a dark and weird film full of gross and funny moments. However, if you like dark comedies with an edge then this is one for you.
