Alan as Interrogator



Quote :
Set in an unspecified country, Stowe's character is taken from her home in the middle of the night, accused of embedding anarchistic messages into her particular book, entitled Closet Land. The book is a story about a child who, as a result of bad behaviour, has been locked in a closet as punishment. While in there, the child is greeted by a group of childhood ally archetypes who innocently attempt to comfort the scared little girl. The seemingly simple content is questioned by the government, which accuses the author of encouraging and introducing anarchism among its audience of naïve children. While the interrogator is obstinate in his belief that the author is guilty of hidden propaganda, the audience is convinced of the victim's innocence. The audience later learns that the novel was actually created as a form of escapism, providing a coping mechanism for the author, who endured sexual abuse as a child. Near the end of the film, the interrogator claims that he was the man who had sexually abused the author in her childhood. But one cannot be entirely sure he was the one who abused her, as the film suggests he was just using the abuse against her as a way of breaking her down.

It's a wonderful movie (first intended as a play, I think). It can be watched on YouTube.
Both actors are great.

In that movie I saw a thing that I've never seen from an actor. Alan uses his voice like a lyrical/opera singer does sometimes. In one scene, he uses 3 different voices, hopping from one voice to another, with an incredible easiness, playing with his voice like a lyrical/opera singer does.

As a singer, I'm very sensitive to that. It's just simply extraordinary ! He can convey so many things with his voice only and we all know how much his voice is wonderful. It's like honey dripping into one's ears... (that's the effect it does on me, whatever the part he plays, or what he says in it).

It's in 9 parts and real worth watching.

Enjoy !

I love this movie too. Still trying to get my hands on a DVD copy, so far without success. And I loved that scene where he uses different voices to torture her. He is so creepy in this movie and it's perfect.

Yeah, this scene was amazing! And I've never seen someone as scary as Alan in this movie! *shudder*
