Wristcutters: A Love Story
Apparently when you off yourself, you don’t go to hell but to another reality/world that is best described as a muted version of the real one. In this place there is no vibrant color, so beautiful scenery and no smiles. This is a setup for a strange movie but Writstcutters: A Love Story is much sweeter than you’d imagine.
The Good: Let’s start off with the concept of the movie, which is so very different than anything else, that’s always a plus in my book. I like how light and fun the story is when set in such a dark place. Patrick Fugit (Almost Famous) was just perfect in this role, I don’t think I’ve ever liked him so much as I did in this movie. Shannyn Sossamon was lovely and brought a different layer to the story.
The Bad: It might be too weird for some people but that’s a possibility with any movie I love. It’s not super fast paced, which I think was on purpose because of this dull reality they were in, but it moved along quick enough for me.
All I know is I had a big goofy smile on my face at the end of the movie, which says a lot considering it’s a movie that is about suicide.
