Mort Rainey (Johnny Depp) is a writer going through a divorce. He retreats to his cabin in the back woods to gather his thoughts and write his next book. There he is confronted by a clearly deranged visitor, John Shooter (John Turturro) who accuses Mort of plagiarizing; if Mort does not confess then John will get him and his little dog too.
How will Mort handle this? Will he get Shooter before getting shot? Will his divorce be settled in an amicable way?
One thing I found in common with Mort is I also like corn however I prefer it raw.
everything about it.it's suspenseful,thrilling and
unpredictable.plus,Johnny Depp gives a masterful performance,in my
opinion.the supporting cast is also great.John Turturro,Maria
Bello,Timothy Hutton and Charles S.Dutton all put in great
performances.i have only seen a handful of Stephen King adaptations,but
probably half of those have been unimpressive to me.like most king
movies,this one has its weirdness.nothing is straightforward or as it
seems.but i felt this one had a bit more depth of character and
story,which is refreshing.there are a few twists and turns and some red
herrings to lead you in the wrong direction.i was kept guessing to the
very end. i thought this movie was great,though like i said i didn't
like it quite as much as two previous King adaptations,such as The
Shawshank redemption and The Green Mile,which are masterpieces,in my
opinion.still,Secret Window is a right up there.for me,Secret Window is
"Secret Window" is based on Stephen King's story "Secret Window, Secret Garden", published in his 1990 collection "Four Past Midnight". The story was adapted for the screen and directed by David Koepp. Koepp does an admirable job of manipulating the audience, creating suspense, and surprising us. Johnny Depp is perfect in the role of this slightly eccentric, suddenly spooked writer. John Turturro gives the most memorable performance of the film as the monotone, obsessed, menacing villain. I wouldn't have pictured Turturro in the role of a country bumpkin. It just goes to show the breadth of his talent. I thoroughly enjoyed "Secret Window". It looks good. The story is solid and layered. Director David Koepp is creative, clever, and has a great sense of timing.
The DVD: Bonus features include four deleted scenes, three featurettes, "Animatics", and an audio commentary from director David Koepp. "From Book to Film" is a documentary featuring interviews with David Koepp and the film's cast. The first 10 minutes of it basically just recap the film. Then there is some discussion of casting and filming. I wouldn't bother with this one. "A Look Through It" is a better documentary. 30 minutes long, David Koepp talks about the decisions he made shooting key sequences in the film, such as the opening hotel sequence and shooting inside the cabin. "Secrets Revealed" is a 13-minute documentary discussing the final 15 minutes of the movie. If you're really interested, these last two documentaries are the ones to watch. "Animatics" shows what are essentially animated storyboards for four scenes in the film. There is no narration or explanation. I had already heard too much commentary from the director to want to listen to the film's audio commentary, so I can't comment on that except to say that director David Koepp is interesting and well-spoken, so you might want to give the commentary a try if an hour's worth of featurettes haven't satisfied you. Subtitles are available in English and French. Dubbing is available in French.
