Ryan Reynolds Kills Because A Cat Tells Him So

I don't often pay attention to film festivals. Certainly, the buzz worth films of the next year or two see their premieres at such places, but I won't have an opportunity to see those films until after they've done the festival circuits, so no use getting excited about something well before it's time. Occasionally though, something leaks through my filter and peaks my curiosity. Such is the nature of The Voices.

"This genre-bending tale centers around Jerry Hickfang (Ryan Reynolds), a lovable but disturbed factory worker who yearns for attention from a woman (Gemma Arterton) in accounting. When their relationship takes a sudden, murderous turn, Jerry’s evil talking cat and benevolent talking dog lead him down a fantastical path where he ultimately finds salvation."
Now, Ryan Reynolds does not have a great track record, but the law of averages suggests that eventually he'll make a good film (and his odder, more independent films do tend towards better than his big Hollywood pictures - see Buried). Gemma Arterton too is a quality actress that gets stuck in the absolute shittiest "tentpole" pictures (as do too many British actresses when they come to LA), but her lower budget films fair better. And the concept is just so damned strange, I can't help but be interested. The film also stars Anna Kendrick, and is directed by Marjane Satrapi, who previously directed the animated Persepolis.
