Film Review: The Voices

Ryan Reynolds gives a finely tuned performance as the charming, yet completely unhinged Jerry in Persepolis creator Marjane Satrapi’s kitschy blacker-than-black comedy.

The use of a vivid colour scheme and some surreal moments in which Jerry chats with his pets (an affable dog named Bosco and the psychotic Glaswegian feline Mr Whiskers, both voiced by Reynolds) as well as the heads of his victims that he keeps in the refrigerator lifts the viewer away from his bleak existence and allows them to see things from his own warped perspective, making it all the more horrific when seen from the point of view of another character. 57 more words


Review: The Voices

Marjane Satrapi sparks a surprising change of tone in this schizophrenic horror comedy. The director of 2007’s powerful Iranian revolution animation Persepolis has traded in a social consciousness for a brash oddball, with obvious points of reference. 265 more words
