review by
Mike Haberfelner

Mickey (Patch Darragh) and Ray (Michael Rispoli) are two wannabe screenwriters who have just been told by their would-be producer (Anthony LoCascio) that their thriller script the've worked on for two years doesn't feel real enough. So Ray arranges for the both of them to observe a real life crime scene - which ticks something off in Mickey, as he figures they have to immerse themselves more in crime (not committing it, just witnessing) to really feel it. But it's not long before Mickey gets off the hook, he loses his job, gets addicted to cocaine, and causes for Ray's laptop with all their scripts on it to be stolen. The two split up as writing partners, and each tries to finish the script on his own. But Mickey feels betrayed by this, so at the first occasion, he starts a relationship with Ray's prostitute friend Chloe (Charlotte Kirk), who Ray used to shag for relief but also tended to like. She in turn feels somehow drawn to Mickey, even though she sees how his obsession and his addiction tear him down. And Mickey really goes off the deep end when he witnesses a murder, is evicted, and witnesses somebody stealing his notebook all on the same day ...

 

the Depths is a film that's almost sure to take you by surprise as keeps one guessing which way it will veer off in, and while it keeps up the suspense pretty much throughout, it defies tried and true thriller formulas, opting instead for an at times painful psychogram of a man who gets into it too deep. This all is of course thanks to a very cleverly written script, a directorial effort that is tension-oriented without suffocating the narrative, and of course a very solid ensemble cast.

Well worth a look!
