Cast Members of Note- Jim Sturgess and the ever gorgeous, Clemence Poesy.
Heartless is about a socially-inept geek who can't get laid because he has a heart-shaped mole on his face that freaks people out, especially the ladies. He lives with his mum, his best friend is a camera, and he sees Demons roaming the streets at night causing all sorts of mayhem. Who doesn't, right?
|I see this every night.|
|Satan kinda looks Russian to me. Maybe Albanian.|
|Chicks dig beauty marks, don't they?|
|Yep, she's a whore.|
Heartless, ironically, has a lot of heart. It's a great premise, it's well made and the actors do their jobs wonderfully, it's dark, a bit creepy in parts, bloody in others, and it has a lead character that you can't help but feel for... so then why am I underwhelmed by it all?
Heartless also had a Clive Barker-ish vibe going on, and I liked that.
|Clemence Poesy has a face worth mentioning in The Good section.|
Eden Lake and Heartless showing us why, they seem to be more of a problem than I had ever realized. It should be legal to put Chavs in a sack, and drown them just like it is with kittens...
I'm pretty sure that's legal. If not, forget I said anything.
|Oh, he is so screwed.|
Satan. Also, Clemence Poesy needs to be in more Horror flicks.
***ENDING SPOILERS, BEWARE*** Heartless is a great little movie in most ways, hindered only by the all too common (at least to me) and crappy "It was all in his head" type of ending. Had they played it straight and just let it be what it seemed to be throughout the whole thing, I think it would have felt more "right." Aside from the fact that most of the movie didn't actually happen the way we thought it did, it's definitely worth checking out.
