Scalene (2011)
Movie Review by The Spastic Cannibal
07.26.12

Scalene (2011) I'm not really sure exactly how to sum up my sentiments on this one. While "Scalene" is an exceptionally well acted drama/thriller (I use "thriller" lightly in this case), it's also a rip off of "Irreversible" with one of the most laughably over-the-top 'twists' I have seen in quite some time.

A mother whose son was rendered brain dead by huffing chemicals seeks revenge against a hired aide who was apparently raped by the mentally disabled young man.

"Scalene" is formatted in an end-to-beginning narrative which shows the entire series of events from the perspectives of all three characters - mother, son, and babysitter/"victim". First off, Margo Martindale as the distraught mother offers up a strong performance that is really the highlight of the film. Something about overweight old ladies on a rampage makes me grin. When it finally gets to big "reveal" which boils down to one of the most ridiculously elaborate rape frame-ups ever conceived. It was SO completely implausible and excessive that it's truly IMPOSSIBLE to take seriously! I think "Scalene" would've worked better had the ending not taken such a drastically 'forced' turn.

You can pick it up at http://breakingglasspictures.com if you're curious or just enjoy face-palm inducing situations depicted on film.
