Headspace: Director’s Cut (2005) Now on Home Video - Page 2
After his encounter with the chess player in the park he becomes a speed-reading whiz, memorizing books with a few turns of the page. When his goofball friend visits him, Alex mentions his sudden interest in chess and how he absorbed a book on the subject in a matter of minutes. He is also having severe headaches and passes out. Taken to the hospital, his only interest is relief from the pain, but the doctors are more interested in his sudden, unexplained intellectual growth. Haunted by visions and nightmares, he suddenly has memories of things he doesn’t think he actually experienced. Oh…and he’s convinced he’s being stalked by demons. When bodies begin dropping, Alex thinks he is responsible for the deaths, but doesn’t know how.
Headspace is engaging, has an interesting storyline, and good production values. However (you knew that was coming, didn’t you?)…when it’s over viewers might find themselves wondering what they just saw. Don’t waste your time trying to make sense of it; enjoy it while you watch it and then forget it.
Bonus features on the DVD include “Fractured Skulls: The Making of Headspace,” filmmakers’ commentaries, “Headspace Revisited” (featurette), deleted, extended and alternate scenes, audition videos, FX Journal, and trailers.
