The Editor movie full length review - Editing

When the lead actor in a horror film that he is working on is murdered, a film editor has to contend with an egotistical replacement actor, a wife who takes too much interest in his work and a detective who thinks that he is guilty in this weird mix of horror, comedy and mystery elements.

Co-director Adam Brooks is great as the jaded, ageing editor in question who claims that he has trouble distinguishing between movies and reality, and its best, the film blurs this line. There are several points where something grisly occurs and it takes one a while to work out whether it is 'actually' happening or just a part of the film being edited. There is also a neat homage to 'Videodrome' late in the piece - Cronenberg's iconic film about a network programmer unable to separate hallucinations from reality. For the most part though, 'The Editor' is just odd. The story does not make much sense with some uncanny supernatural elements and some unexplained bizarreness in which Brooks actually seems to enter the reels of the very film he is editing at one point. The final twist at the end is baffling too. Brooks is, however, the only actor who plays his part in a down-to-earth manner and with everyone else overacting, turning it up to 11, it seems evident that the film was intended to be a comedy first and foremost. If one does not focus on deciphering the plot too much, the film does in fact have several funny bits and pieces. The dialogue of the film within the film is hilariously bad, and then there is a replacement editor who insists that 'The Battleship Potemkin' was edited by Albert Einstein!
