Armless – Review

Posted January 24, 2010 in


Sundance Film Festival

Director: Habib Azar

John suffers from body integrity identity disorder, an unusual condition where individuals wish to remove their limbs. John wants to cut off both of his arms. He heads to NYC, leaving his wife Anna, to find a doctor that he has been told will complete the procedure. If the doctor denies his request, John is prepared to do the deed by himself … with a saw purchased from a hardware store. Made on a shoestring budget, the real genius of Armless isn’t the bizarre story. Instead, it’s the clever dialogue and quirky character interactions that make this film so noteworthy. – Jeanette D.
