DVD Tuesday: McKellen & Csokas’ ‘Asylum’

Asylum stars Natasha Richardson in an unsettling psychological thriller about the repressed, 1950s wife of a psychiatrist and her affair with a convicted killer (Marton Csokas). Stella, Max, and their son Charlie move to a high-security psychiatric hospital, where the priggish Max joins the staff and hopes to ascend, in time, to the top spot, replacing the soon-to-retire hospital director. Standing in Max’s way is another doctor, Cleave (Ian McKellen), who takes a quiet yet somehow sinister interest in unhappy Stella’s apparent attraction to Edgar (Csokas). [More]

It begs the question, why does Hollywood think New Zealanders make great assassins? [More]
