The Cell

Directed by Tarsem Singh

The Cell only hints at greatness, copping out when it ought to be diving in. The filmmakers suffer from a bad case of cinema interruptus, yanking us out of Carl's head at those moments when we want to see more. They set up grand possibilities (it's likely FBI Agent Novak also suffered child abuse) without letting them pay off. And they solve their mystery in such hack fashion it seems like an afterthought or an unaired episode of Profiler. The Cell is disappointing only because its best moments are transcendent; its worst moments, sadly, are just so ordinary.
