After years of trying and failing to become a franchise-friendly leading man, Ryan Reynolds may have finally found his true calling: starring in pitch black comedies about crazy people who murder women on the order of their pets. At lest that’s the premise of ‘The Voices,’ a deranged little movie that won its fair share of fans on the festival circuit last year. Now that the new trailer has arrived, we can see why: this thing looks nuts.
There's nothing funny about schizophrenia. 'The Voices' understands this, and shows the horror of the disease. And then has you cracking up anyway. It's this diabolical blend of shock and candy-colored kitsch without mockery that makes this first English-language film from Marjane Satrapi ('Persepolis,' 'Chicken with Plums') so unique and, to be honest, something that will turn most people off.
