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!

Writers/directors 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.
