The Place For The Latest Movie Reviews
Cast: A.J. Bond, Marguerite Moreau, Cbo David Amito
Inspired by a flippant remark about the treatment of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, filmmaker A.J. Bond made a bet with his close friend, actor David Amito, to see which of them could withstand a week of psychological torture at the hands of the other. What begins as a bizarre and darkly humorous experiment gradually spirals out of control, testing the limits of their friendship.
Wow, what a fantastic piece of film making this was. Whatever you do avoid reading spoilers for this film anywhere because this is one film that needs to be seen to appreciate.
"Stress Position" opens with A.J. and Dave explaining to the audience what is about to happen. Their little experiment came about when A.J. made a comment that he could get out of Guantanamo Bay using reasoning and his wits but Dave believes otherwise. So the two decide to settle it with a bet, each will become the others prisoner of sorts for seven days of psychological torture or until they crack and give up a password to a bank account they each put 10,000 dollars in. Dave is elected to go first and A.j has his team ready to get it all on film.
What a crazy, funny, twisted and even a bit satanic film this is. There are funny moments in the film as well as some very disturbing ones as well. What starts out as a fun little experiment in film-making for the two quickly escalates into something more psychologically and psychically terrifying than either could have imagined.
David Amito and A.J. Bond are both terrific in the film and they play off one another perfectly. And the beautiful Marguerite Moreau is also great as Marguerite, their assistant.
"Stress Position" reminds us all that the art of film-making is alive and well. This is a very clever, funny, engaging and creative film with more twists than your local pretzel shop, I highly recommend seeing it to everyone. Available now, you can order the DVD HERE. Do yourself a favor and check out this original masterpiece that amazes on every level.
