Eye of the Beholder

Jays Rating:
Actors: /

A bizarre film that is very unpredictable is Eye of the Beholder. In this thriller Ewan McGregor, also known as the “Eye”, is a secret agent who works for some sort of British intelligence agency. While gathering information on an embezzlement case, he watches as a beautiful woman arrives at the embezzler’s home and is invited in. As the Eye listens from the outside the woman later identified as Joanna, played by Ashley Judd, covers the floor with a big plastic sheet, kisses the man while helping him to kneel, and blindfolds him. She then takes out a huge knife. Even I could see what was going to happen next. The man in the room didn’t and Joanna uses the piece of plastic to wrap the body up like a big cigar. The Eye watches as Joanna dumps the body in a river and moves on to her next victim. The Eye follows her for months as she becomes not just a murderer, but a serial killer. The Eye is not without his own problems. It’s obvious he’s not playing with a full deck when he relentlessly talks to a daughter that not only I can’t see, but also no one else can either. Throughout the movie, it is never clear whom the Eye works for, why the Eye is obsessed with Joanna and why she kills people at the drop of a hat. This movie is full of twists and turns, yet the characters themselves are one-dimensional and seem to serve no purpose. The suspense and mystery manages to hold the attention of the audience only to lose it completely at the end. This is a must see if you want to see Ashley Judd in lingerie. Obviously that does nothing for me. I give it a C rating.

This movie has been given an R rating by the MPAA

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
