Secret Window

For most people that have seen the movie and liked it, it's always for the same reasons. The weird twist at the end and Johnny Depp. Being based on a Steven King story this movie has a way of capturing the audiences attention, through slight humor all the way down to questioning your own sanity while your sitting on your couch watching the main character questioning his. The main character is Morton Reeney, a man who lives by himself, in a cute little cabin centered in New York. He is played by none other than Johnny Depp, the main who most people think of as the off-centered Jack Sparrow from the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy.

In the movie Morton(Mort) is a writer who is troubled by his soon be to ex-wife's unfaithfulness and is trying to live through his day to day activities with no one to talk to but his dog Chico. Mort doesn't leave the house much, he takes long unnecessary naps on his worn out couch and writes very little. Out of the blue one day he is awoken from one of his naps by a man knocking on his door. The man with the southern drawl goes by the name Shooter and is accusing Mort of plagiarizing one of his stories and that's where the movie takes off.

Mort is basically alone in having to deal with Shooter's accusations and finds himself getting tangled up in shooters games. That's all I'm going to say of the story line, in case people haven't seen it

Personally I think that Johnny Depp did a fantastic job on this movie, though the movie didn't get much recognition. He really captures the fear Mort has and displays it wonderfully on camera both physically and mentally. The movie is also a different side of Johhny that no one has seen before. For anyone who hasn't seen it, I highly recommend the movie, it's my favorite movie of all time.
