AKA:
Directed by: Adrian Tofei
Starring: Adrian Tofei, Sonia Teodoriu, Florentina Hariton, Alexandra Stroe
Country: Romania
Language: English, Romanian
Runtime: 01:26:57
Genres: Snuff, Captivity-Kidnapping

Plot – Spoilers:
Adrian, living in Romania, is obsessed with Hollywood actress Anne Hathaway after seeing her as Catwoman and wants to impress her into acting in his film. For this, he convinces three Romanian actresses to star in his movie as a sort of pilot for Anne to judge his talents. And as the clincher, he decides to make it a snuff movie.

Random Trivia:
Edit: The following is said to be inaccurate by the director in the comments section.

The scene where Sonia calls the police has been claimed by the director as having actually happened. Apparently, the actress started to panic that things were turning too real for her.

Speaking in Romanian was the pre-agreed safeword between director and actors and there’s one more scene with Sonia, where she’s tied up and breaks out of character, shifting to Romanian.

Similarly, the men who turn up in the basement were also real neighbours.

    this is a frustrating movie to watch.

    i think the main character is a really interesting subject. there’s moments throughout where i can see the genuine characterization that he cares very deeply about anne hathaway. that? is interesting! i feel like if we spent more time with that concept, with his obsession, how far that obsession needs to go, i would have enjoyed this more. as it is, i am kind of inundated with his interactions with the movie he’s making.

    this falls flat for me because i don’t know why he wants to make this movie as much as i know that he wants anne to see it. but we’re told from the jump that he’s been working on it for years before seeing her in batman.

    man, i don’t think of myself as much of a gorehound, but i really wanted this movie to be a lot gnarlier! show me a guts!!! reveal them from behind your hanging sheet! more blood! *shakes fist*

    the actresses involved have really interesting performances. i think the two after sonia have great chemistry with one another, but when it comes to adrien, there is such a disconnect. i get that he is unhinged. i get that when it comes to that, his intonation and cadence isn’t going to be what someone might regularly expect. i find myself really aggravated watching him talk, listening to him talk and repeat himself and have such a weirdly jokey tone with every piece of dialogue.

    we are hammered on the head with every fucking plot point. the point where he realizes he’s basically his own character; we do not need to spend this three minute scene repeating over and over that he’s ready, he’s the character.

    these quirks in adrien’s character aren’t… the worst possible thing. i feel like if you set us up to like him a little more, introduce us a bit more to why he’s like this, i would be a little less harsh on him. as it is, i find him just kinda fuckin’ dorky.

    i find myself comparing him to the protagonist of human centipede 2; adrien’s clearly a weird guy, and i think there’s a treatment of him in these last twenty-ish minutes that feels like he’s got some kind of confidence. while story-wise, this makes sense, it doesn’t feel earned. like in thc2, he’s got an obsession, and he wants to see it through, but he doesn’t feel appropriately self-pitying? we have a reason to pity martin in that movie. he’s a little fat fuck creep but he has NOTHING going for him.

    adrien is compelling, but not compelling enough. the scene at the end here he’s telling alexandra about all of his problems, it’s shoehorning so much into such a short amount of time. us learning his fear of leaving the town at the end of the movie puts things in context but jesus, man, we had like a whole movie’s length to deal with this.

    the end, as i’m watching it, kinda pisses me off because i? sure, let’s leave your one witness alive?

    this movie has a lot of promise and i don’t think i’m the audience it’s meant for but cheers regardless. thanks as always eum!
