Seven Movies in Seven Days: PANIC

Tonights movie comes on the suggestion of my buddy Aaron, and it’s Henry Bromwell’s “Panic.”

The synopsis is as follows: “The story of Alex, who tries to get out of the Family Company but his father wont let him. While seeking the help of a therapist he meets a sexually-charged-23-year-old Girl, who he falls in love with.”

This movie has a lot going for it as far as I’m concerned: William H. Macy, Neve Campbell, and Donald Sutherland. However, until Aaron suggested it, I had never heard of it before.

The reviews of the flick on Netflix are mixed. Some liked it. Some didn’t. It’s got a 6.8 out of 10 on IMDB. Evidently, there’s a big change in tone toward the second half of the movie that rubs people the wrong way. But I’m willing to give this flick a shot.

Until next time, keep writing!

Update: Really cool flick. It was a neat introspective take on what it’s like for a hitman trying to lead a regular life. Macy just bring such credibility to his roles. This flick was no different. Some people might find it a little slow, but if you’re into character dramas, I’d suggest checking this one out.

  1. I mean hey, I love the ‘action goof-off’ flicks where the hitmen all wear leather trenchcoats and strafe through the middle of crowded parks during the day with assault rifles and go on spray and pray blastfests.

    On the other hand, a movie like this: where the hitman looks like a normal guy, deals with personal issues and doubts, and slows it down to a more, well, realistic pace.
