Mary (Katharine Isabelle) is a brilliant medical student who might have
a promising career as a surgeon ahead of her ... but that's all in the
future, nowadays she has to struggle to pay her rent and keep her main
professor, Dr Grant (David Lovgren), happy. To do so, she tries to get a
job at a strip club, and visits a surgeons only party - and in a bitter
twist of irony, Billy (Antonio Cupo), head of the strip club, does not
require her to undress but needs her skills as a(n underworld) surgeon ...
while at the party, Dr Grant drugs and rapes her. As a consequence, Mary
quits her studies and persuades Billy to kidnap Dr Grant ... as her
sort-of test subject for inflicting pain ...
Due to her services for
Billy, Mary soon makes the acquaintance of stripper Beatress (Tristan
Risk), a girl whose body obviously some plastic surgery has been done on,
and she gets her in touch with Ruby Realgirl (Paula Lindberg), who wants
to become a literal living doll - via surgery. And before she knows it,
Mary has been sucked into the world of (illegal) bodymodification, as one
of the top plastic surgeons of the underground, and she makes more money
than she can ever hope to spend ... but not only is what she does illegal,
there's also a cop (John Emmet Tracy) looking for Dr Grant, Ruby
Realgirl's husband (Travis Watters) who's not happy with her
modifications, Billy, who's long fallen in love with Mary but has sick
dreams about her, and of course Mary's own attitude that leans more and
more towards detachment on the outside but towards breaking point on the
inside - all the perfect ingredients for an enjoyably unhealthy cocktail!
Jen and Sylvia Soska have a guest appearance in this one as (what else?)
identical twins wanting their right arms transplanted onto one another to
express their everlasting bond ...
I won't lie: American
Mary is one sick movie ... and it's so much fun just because of that -
and the point here is that the Soska-twins didn't set out just to freak
people out but present all of their sickness in a proper narrative frame,
tell their story by way of irony and pitch-black humour rather than via
blood and gore, and their directorial effort prefers subtlety over
sensationalism every time. Add to this a spot-on performance by Katharine
Isabelle (accompanied by an all-around competent cast), and you've got
yourself a great piece of cinema, sick as it might be.
