The best way to describe Faults is that it plays like an Off-Broadway stage play that someone dreamt up after spending a day watching Coen Brothers flicks.
It's definitely an "out there" sort of movie, but in a very subtle, straight-forward kind of way.
Faults without giving away its twists and turns, so we're going to keep it short and sweet in the breakdown section.
Ansel Roth is one of the world's foremost experts on mind control and deprogramming; when someone you love (who is of weak mind) has been brainwashed by a cult, he's the guy you call in to kidnap them and "return them to normal" by locking them in a room and telling them how stupid they are for five days. Of course this radical deprogramming method doesn't always work, as every now and then one of the people that he "saves" ends up killing themselves, so hopefully, he gets paid up front.
|"SO, UM... HOW MUCH IS YOUR DAUGHTER WORTH TO YOU AGAIN?"|
Once the deprogramming begins however, it quickly becomes clear that Ansel has gotten himself into something far deeper (and creepier) than he could have ever imagined. Deep deprogramming ensues.
|LET THE HEALING BEGIN!|
|TIME FOR YOUR "BATH."|
|"SAY GOODNIGHT TO THE CULT GUY!"|
On a quick side note: It's really annoying when IMDB spoils a movie by listing when actors play dual characters, e.g. Jim/Mangler. Needless to say, avoid reading through IMDB until after you see Faults.
|STOP THAT SHIT, IMDB!|
|GIVEN THEIR SITUATION, THEY BOTH SEEM A BIT TOO RELAXED.|
Faults is available now on VOD.
Mary Elizabeth Winstead (MEW if you're nasty) any day. To help her, pervs! Get your minds out of the gutter.
