(2008, now renamed "Mister Foe")
You won't love this strange drama for its nudity. There is some, but it
is pretty tame. The story, however, is fairly interesting, although the
hero is not especially lovable. In fact, he's just plain damned weird.
Hallam Foe is 17 and very strange. His mother has committed suicide,
and Hallam copes by becoming a stalker and peeping tom, even breaking into
places to rummage through people's belongs.
Hallam is obsessed with the notion that his stepmother (Claire Forlani)
killed his mother, and he almost strangles her, but winds up having sex
with her instead. After this incident, Hallam leaves for Edinburgh, where
he spots a young woman (Sophia Myles) who strongly resembles his mother.
He stalks her, becoming more obsessed, then gets a job in a hotel where
she is a supervisor, and eventually strikes up a friendship with her.
This is a fascinating character study, but very strange, with a nicely
twisting ending. It's not for everyone, but some will find it intriguing.
