5.0 out of 5 stars Dark, disturbing and I will watch it again! June 7 2012
By Dee J. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I haven't watched a film as dark and psychological as "Keyhole," since "Eraserhead." A naked man chained to a bed and things being done for sometimes, no apparent reason. This film was the perfect noir for B&W (o.k., a couple of frames of color, unexpectedly!) Jason Patric is always interesting in this one and Director Guy Maddin manages to pull off one strange movie. Not for the kids, in case you were wondering.
3.0 out of 5 stars Bizarre for the sake of being bizarre... April 17 2013
By Andrew Ellington - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Far be it for a Guy Maddin film to be bizarre. `Keyhole' is one of those films that feels so strange, almost uncomfortably so. I am not familiar with much of Maddin's work. In fact, I think I've only seen this and `The Saddest Music in the World' (which I loved) and so I'm not all that familiar with his style, although I can gather from those two experiences where his head is at.

For me `Keyhole' is far more about the style than the substance, which is a shame. `The Saddest Music in the World' felt so balanced in that regard, offering us enough style to accentuate the substance. Here, the substance seems stripped and the style amped to result in a bizarrely entertaining film that is overly long and ultimately forgettable. Still, there are aspects of this film that deserve our attention; namely the technical merits (those costumes and set pieces are to die for) and the central performances (Jason Patrick, Isabella Rossellini and Brooke Palsson taking top honors).

The plot is basically a sadistic fable that follows a gangster named Ulysses as he returns home with a drenched teenage girl and a bound and gagged young man. Ulysses is at odds with his wife, Hyacinth, who is secluded upstairs with her father. Despite the prospect of a mutiny between his gang of thugs, Ulysses is intend on finding his wife by searching the house room by room, twist by turn.

It's a warped film without a real sense of direction and yet it keeps you drawn to every frame. It's a film I feel like I can admire without loving and one that I may actually look back to with even more respect and admiration as time goes by. It is well worth seeing, and one to watch more than once, since the initial viewing is sure to be dampened by confusion.
3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad film from legendary director Maddin Aug. 10 2012

Guy Maddin's films are on the weird side like lynch or cronenberg but they hold their own. This film is not too weird but it has its moments. Great performances by Jason Patric and Isabella Rossallini. If you are a fan of his work check it out.
2.0 out of 5 stars It's not as organically sound as other Madden films. ... Aug. 11 2014

It's not as organically sound as other Madden films. It needs the grunge and noise.
Try my short film... Bum Rap - A Noir Fantasy, up on youtube in HD. Not for Iphones or mobile.

5.0 out of 5 stars "A HAUNTING PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER IN A TOUR LIKE NO OTHER!" June 25 2012
By Geraldine Ahearn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This is a creepy, haunting thriller from start to finish! As Scary as 'The Shining' because you don't know what will happen next. A gangster arrives home with a woman's body hanging over his shoulder to find dark, disturbing events taking place inside his haunted house. His gang, who escaped the police await for his arrival, and they don't have the highest respect for him. His wife is upstairs in her bedroom, and there's a lot of activity going on inside the house. The home becomes an emotional roller-coaster ride of horror, strangeness, nudity, and a darkness that reflects upon the mysterious family that live there. Not Recommended for Children, or viewers who dislike psychological thrillers. This one in particular will indeed send chills up your spine!
