Glass

Drama Sci-Fi


 

Three men, each with the traits of a comic book superhero, find themselves locked up in the same, sinister psychiatric facility.

As a standalone effort, "Glass" is a little fragile and tries too hard to explain what is going on and why. Much effort is vested in rationalising the inexplicable but to no avail. There are many memory flashbacks and time spent in dingy comic book stores without revealing much. After an effortful setup and teasing foreplay, our expectation of a climatic consummation is deliberately subverted, we're shattered but not sure why. A pane.
