Thoughts on The Voices

I watched a weird but interesting dark comedy, The Voices. Ryan Reynolds plays a factory worker who hears voices in his head, manifested by his pet cat and dog, acting as his bad conscience and good conscience. He refuses to take his medication because the hallucinations allow him to hear the voices and deny reality. The story gets really twisted as he pursues his work crush with horrible results, and it gets more disastrous from there.

Reynolds is really good in this. He is very convincing as a socially removed guy who prefers to see a fake happy version of the world than reality, and after being in a lot of crap for years, it is good to see Reynolds take a chance and be in an interesting movie finally. Gemma Arterton, Anna Kendrick, and Jacki Weaver are in this, and the film was directed by Marjane Satrapi (Persepolis) and written by Michael R. Perry.
