'You are not where you belong' says the fortune teller, and Edmond begins his descent into a darkly funny yet horrifyingly urban hell in this compelling film. The encounter causes Edmond to confront the emptiness of his life and marriage, prompting him to flee the safe boredom of his home for the vortexof the dark streets of L.A., tilting him into a free-fall that he mistakes for liberation. As Edmond spirals on towards personal disintegration, his racism and homophobia emerges and he freely expresses it. 'Every fear hides a wish', he discovers.

The descent into personal hell. - Edmond review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
12/04/2010

Edmond is a strange film and not at all what I expected. Directed by Stuart Gordon who is far better known for writing and directing horror films, the film follows the character of Edmond, a seemingly mild mannered businessman who after a spontaneous visit to a fortune teller is told 'You are not where you belong'. From that point he leaves his wife and wanders the city streets looking for a sexual encounter which sets of a chain of events which will change his life forever. This is one of those films in which the acting pretty much carries film. While plenty happens in the film it does feel a bit like 'Falling Down' meets 'Crash' and while William H. Macy was as good as ever the film pretty much limps along trying its best to shock you along the way.
