It’s hard to fight an enemy who has outposts in your head.
This isn’t a film. It’s an experience.
Pablo Picasso’s “1971 Harlequin Head”, thought forever lost in a Romanian fire, is found vividly alive in the disturbed psyche of a tortured man’s soul.
Although grizzly, the action and title are just strong metaphors about our need to deal with internal fears, and internal terror. It is necessary to open a third eye (symbolized in drill scene); necessary to dare to look straight on at the things we need to face. In doing so, we free ourselves to embrace and learn from the things we are prone to unnecessarily fear the most.
Cast: Micah Fitzgerald (From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Fear the Walking Dead, Westworld), Gia Vangieri (How Not To)
