Plot: This movie focuses on the attempts of a psychiatrist to prevent one of his patients from committing suicide while trying to maintain his own grip on reality. Runtime: 99 mins Release Date: 21 Oct 2005
It is a truism that film, as a photographic medium, intrinsically resists the psychological. In the hands of a less gifted director, this would have been equally true of STAY, despite its overt plot in which a professor of psychiatry struggles to find a psychological clue in order to prevent a young artist from committing suicide at a precise time and location the artist has planned. But without altering this plot as written, director Marc Forster has invented an editing style combined with a rigorous control of transitions and point of view to create nothing less than a parallel plot to <more>
the film, in which the professor must contend with the horror of his own descent into full-blown psychosis.Since the director conveys this parallel plot entirely through visual means, and within the point of view of the hero of the story, its consequences are all the more disconcerting, and we feel the terror of the realization of losing one's mind more acutely than in any previous screen depiction of madness I have seen.Much as the young artist's psychotic identity implicitly consumes the identity of his psychiatrist, so does the visual plot consume the overt, written plot of the film, like an unconscious motivation that overcomes a conscious one. By succeeding with such an ambitious design, Forster has invented a new kind of film in which the psychological, in all its frightening depths, finally becomes visible.
this movie is blissful confusion, the acting on Ewan and Ryan's part was amazing, wish we had seen more of Naomi though.. too bad, this movie is full of twist and turns, if anyone has seen "a spiders web", its a little like that, and a touch like Donnie Darko, minus the crazed demon bunny, a truly beautifully shot film,the director, and director of photography,should both be given an awarded for the way it was shot, any one who can appreciate art can appreciate this movie, between the flow shot's, and the fades, it was amazing, and i was in awe, i fully recommend it of you <more>
haven't seen it, its worth the price of admission, and will loose a great deal of it's affect on a small screen, or regular TV, again i urge you to go see it while it's still in theaters
Brilliant! Once again, another example of box office revenue meaning nothing (by nickdove)
As stated in the subject, this film is pure brilliance! The story is not completely original, it draws small inspirations from such films as "Identity", "Fight Club", "12 Monkeys" and even a little "Sixth Sense". But don't let that deter you if you did not care for those films! "Stay" is pure, cinematic genius from beginning to end.Marc Forster is probably one of the greatest up-and-coming directors of our time. What he's done with this film will make any cinephile drool with delight. There are so many innovative camera techniques that <more>
your eyes experience a sensory overload of pure genius. One of these trademarks is a technique where he transitions from one setting to another while still making you think you're in the previous scene for a few seconds. For example, in a scene where we see Ewen McGregor's character in a shop, the camera then switches views to the glass door of the shop, which we see another important character looking through it. The door opens and the character walks through, at which point we realize he was going through a subway door in a totally different scene. Forster uses this technique, as well as many other amazing tricks, throughout, and it's no less brilliant every time we see it them.As I said, the plot will remind you of a few other movies, yet the actual twisted ending, and the avenue which Forster and the writers take us there, is so completely different and interesting that this film simply must be seen.McGregor did a fantastic job as psychiatrist Sam Foster, and Gosling was unbelievably realistic and convincing as the mentally unstable patient. Of special note is Bob Hoskin's almost cameo role as Foster's friend Leon. His character is so sympathetic and believable that it almost made me cry.As usual with such films as last years "The Jacket", this movie was marketed as some supernatural horror film, but it's by no means a horror film. In fact I went into this movie dreading all the jump scenes and disturbing, weirdness that would make me run from my car to my front door at night, but really this is a straight up thriller in the vein of "12 Monkeys" and "Sixth Sense" minus the ghostly appearances and dead people .If you consider yourself someone who is tired of Hollywood's big-budget, slam-bang drivel and want to actually have your brain scrambling with thoughts throughout an entire film, RUN, do not walk, and see this film.
A brilliant film about a young man near death (by Melissa_1982)
It's hard to comment on this film without including a spoiler, but I feel it is necessary to try because of all of the unwarranted bad reviews this film is receiving. If you go into it expecting to see a rendition of The 6th Sense, you might be disappointed. If you go into it expecting to see a logical plot with a chronological story behind it and an honest portrayal of developed characters, you will be disappointed and very confused.However, if you go see this film with an open mind and simply EXPERIENCE what it has to offer, you will be rewarded greatly at the end - assuming, of course, <more>
that you understand what you have just seen, at least to some degree. For the best experience, pay attention to the little details, but don't try to figure anything out until the end. See it with someone so that you can discuss it afterward. It's that good.This movie is visually appealing and artistically constructed - pleasing to both the eye AND to the mind.
A top notch Lynch-y psychological thriller (by evilmatt-3)
This is really a spectacular film. I know I'm going to have to see it at least once more, because there's so much stuff going on that it's impossible to give Stay the attention in deserves in one viewing.First and foremost, although I won't give away the plot here, I'll say that the movie thankfully does not rely on a surprise ending for the totality of its impact. In fact, if you're paying attention, you can pretty much figure out mostly what the situation is before you get too far into the movie. Unlike some of the worst examples of this genre i.e. The Sixth <more>
Sense , Stay is not a film that "hides the ball," but instead presents you with characters and a storyline, and asks you to draw your own conclusions.That said, there isn't an obvious solution to the movie. While you may be able to explain the film after viewing it which is trickier that it will seem at first , you may realize that the real brilliance of this film is in the levels of its narrative. At its core, it is a basic psychological thriller. Simultaneously, and perhaps subconsciously, it also meditates on weighty issues of reality and identity- consider what the imperative "Stay" means to different characters at different points in the film, and it's almost like you're watching an entirely different movie than you originally thought.Finally, the visuals in this movie provide their own context and narrative regarding the fragile nature of human memory and perception. This is the best looking movie I've seen in a long time, and the fact that it's combined with such a great story and cast makes this a rare treat.If there is a weak link here, it's probably Gosling, who I think missed some opportunities to really dig in with his character and creep us out. Still his acting is better than that of most of Hollywood's garbage these days.Final verdict: if you want a smart and unsettling film that will spur a serious discussion, watch this. You won't be disappointed.
Have you heard of Stay? If you're here you must have but I'll bet it wasn't too long ago that you found out about it. It's a movie that came out late last year with little fanfare, was dismissed as a poor movie by critics and quickly ushered back out of theaters.It's a crying shame.It was a wonderful movie. My favorite type of movies are psychological horror movies. Favorites include: Jacob's Ladder, Mulholland Dr., Donnie Darko, and in a similar realm, Momento and Fight Club. I love seeing a good representation of the human mind on film and that is exactly what this <more>
film shows so well.It's about a college student Ryan Gosling who tells his shrink Ewan McGregor that he is going to kill himself on the stroke of midnight this Saturday, leaving his shrink to enlist the help of his formerly suicidal girlfriend Naomi Watts to figure out why he wants to kill himself and how to stop him, while his world falls apart.It's directed by Marc Forster of Monster's Ball and Finding Neverland fame. The movie has been called pretentious, shallow, ridiculous, bewildering, absurd, and empty by many reviewers. Personally I think that they didn't have the patience for it and/or were put off by its extravagant visuals and cuts. I thought it was great and deserves much more credit than it has received.The movie's visual style is very interesting and jarring in a good way. It had me constantly saying to my girlfriend "did you see that?" Full of slight of the hand camera/editing tricks. Nearly everything in the movie is symbolic of other things or ideas in the movie. The acting is very good, especially among the lesser characters. Everything in the movie feels so unreal, but that is serves some purpose even if one couldn't know what it is right away. A second viewing would reveal many new things. In the end much of the movie is left up to interpretation and my girlfriend and I had a good conversation about our ideas on what things meant in the movie. After thinking about it for a day I'm pretty sure that I could explain everything in the movie, even what the hell is up with Ewan McGregor's pants, Why Gosling wanted to commit suicide and the twins and triplets.It was fun was figuring out what the rest of the movie meant after seeing its end, the solution. The movie is like a code and the end is the decryption key. It differs from other "sixth sense" type surprise ending movies because everything you would see in the movie before the end would not act as a clue to what it all means or what the ending is. It's more like decrypting a diary than a problem with a solution to it.Basically, any movie buff owes it to themselves to see this movie. I rented it but after seeing it I fully intend to purchase the DVD.
good if you are bright enough to follow (by jmk0016)
I only saw the the pre-screening of the film not the final edition, but I loved the movie. The "surprise" ending is a little overused, but the way the movie uses the perspective of the story to confuse the viewer was great. I thought this was a great film and I love Naomi Watts. My wife however didn't enjoy it mainly because she didn't get it. Those of us in the post viewing discussion group here in Pasadena that liked it were fairly intelligent and understood the movie, and the people who didn't like it, not only didn't understand what had happened at the end, they <more>
had trouble understanding it when explained. If you enjoy movies that make you think, and you like to try and figure out movies that have something strange going on behind the scenes this movie is for you. And again it is worth see just to see another good showing by Naomi Watts.
More about the journey than the destination (by DennisH)
It would be cruel to reveal anything about the story before seeing this film because most of the enjoyment is learning which path the story will choose.The film has masterful visual style. At times it appears to be a normal picture until the surreal aspects make themselves known with subtlety. The editing is seamless, almost but not quite confusing, and the callbacks to earlier scenes are never overused.It is not a spoiler to state that early on Something Isn't Quite Right, and there are story elements that the avid moviegoer will know to be central to the conclusion. However, it's <more>
the path that leads to the end that makes the time enjoyable.Naomi Watts, as usual, is perfect, and Ewan McGregor has again picked one of the scripts that was for the art and not the money. Ryan Gosling is effective, and Jeanine Garafolo's three minutes were eerie. I'm certain that Elizabeth Reaser will be seen again.Not a perfect movie, but definitely worth the time if you enjoy surrealistic stories.8/10
I saw this in the cinema solely because I had nothing else to do and that Ewan McGregor was in it. I had no idea what it was about. I am so glad that I watched it, because this film left me thinking for ages.This is a thriller about a psychiatrist which I happen to be one trying to help a depressed & suicidal patient. The film twists unexpectedly all the time without getting bizarre. The visual effects are stunning, and the soundtrack created the eerie atmosphere which gave me creeps. The best thing about this film is that the film keeps you in suspense throughout the film, without the <more>
use of sudden loud noises, gore or scary scenes. Everything in the film seemed so every day life to me anyway and yet it keeps you on the edge all the time. The interspersed scenes of unrelated objects creates suspense in a way that is surreal. In the ending, I was totally surprised at that happened. I had to really think a lot to figure out what happened. Usually, when I don't understand a film, I say it is bad bad bad, but for this film, it leaves me wanting to find out more about it.I strongly recommend anyone to watch this film!
