Ben (Jonathan Leslie) is having boyfriend troubles again so his grandma introduces him to Albert (David Sillars), an eccentric painter who doubles as an unconventional, Jung-inspired psychotherapist. Their therapy sessions end up revealing as much about Albert as they do about Ben in this twisted, sexual comedy. A witty study of social mores and sexual excess where the boundaries between doctor and patient, artist and muse become increasingly blurred, 'Seat in Shadow' is the debut feature from writer/director Henry Coombes.
I did not see the point of this film, which for me was so disjointed that I found myself thinking about other things! I may have missed a fundamental issue trying to be discussed but if I did I would like to know what it was!

- Seat in Shadow review by Pete W
I'm glad the blurb about the film told me it was a comedy - I would never have known otherwise. No idea what the point of the film was.
I totally got what the film was about but continually kept asking myself 'Why?'. I really don't get what the point of the film was as there wasn't any sort of a sensible beginning, the middle was full of strange nonsense and there wasn't even an ending..............I don't think so anyway!
