FILM -- Faces in the Crowd


Ok...this film was officially released October 25th, 2011 and was directed by Julien Magnat. It's pretty much about a serial killer on the loose through a town, running around slitting throats of victims without being caught or suspected. One night a teacher named Anna, played by Milla Jovovich, is walking home after a girls night out and witnesses a murder by accident. The killer becomes very obvious to Anna's witnessing his murder and begins to chase her. While in this chase, Anna somehow gets thrown into a the river and while falling she hits her head against an iron rod. When she wakes up, unfortunately, she doesn't remember faces.


Poor Anna is so shattered that she is not able to see her own face in the mirror as it reflects a different image every time. Now, there are investigators searching for this mysterious killer, while Anna is living with "face-blindness". The face blindness occurs when one facial feature changes each time Anna loses sight of them. In Anna's case, it's horrible because she could be sleeping with the serial killer.


Um...ok, so it had a really cool concept to it but I'd most likely never watch this movie again. It has its flaws but was carried with believable actors ad actresses. However! Its predictable, not really a memorable film and seems like it belongs on the Lifetime channel. But! If you do like Lifetime movies and Milla Jovovich, it's for you! Point is...if you ever have the time to watch it, I'd say it's worth a watch, though there isn't anything special about it. Anyway! I give this film 2 out of 5 queen skulls!
