Secret Window


Anyone interested in the portrayal of mental illness in film might enjoy the 2004 film 'Secret Window'. Starring Johnny Depp and John Turturro, it is about a successful writer who spends time in a log cabin to overcome writer's block. When a sinister figure appears one day accusing Mort, the writer, of plagiarising his book, a trail of violence and suspicion ensues [I won't elaborate to save spoiling the ending]. This film has had some terrible reviews so don't expect a masterpiece!

Yep, there's no need for you to give the ending away... I'd spotted the "twist" by about 20 minutes in! It's a good thing Johnny Depp can do no wrong...
