HIDE and SEEK: Come Out Wherever You Are (My Journey of Movie Review)
Watching movies is one of my hobby beside playing video games and blogging. Almost hundred movies I have seen and horror, adventure, thriller genre are my favorite. I have one movie recommendation to all of you to watch during this pandemic situation. This movie also inspires me to analyze to achieve degree holder. This movie entitled Hide and Seek. Let's review it!
Hide and Seek is a movie produced in 2005 starting Robert De Niro and Dakota Fanning as the main characters and categorized as thriller/horror genre. This movie is very interesting because it relates to psychological mental health and you can learn what it is about after watching. And this movie later inspired me to write an analysis and soon got my degree in English Literature.
This movie tells a life of a small family who gets haunted by the presence of daughter friend named Charlie. The presence of daughter friend Charlie here later reveals unbelievable murdered. The murdered victim here is mother of the daughter. Who done this actually? Well, at the beginning of the movie, you won't get the answered. It will reveal at the end of the movie along with reasons behind same like others psychological movies such as Shutter Island. The murderer was the husband or father of the daughter. The husband didn't realize that he was doing a murder since he had mental health disease called Multiple Personality Disorder. During the movie like I mentioned above, the daughter got a friend named Charlie who always came to her room in the middle of night. When Charlie comes, he always left kind of signs that later disturbed the father. If you carefully see the signs here, it actually wants to tell the murder.
The reason why the husband killed his own wife is because betrayal. His wife actually is having an affair with her colleague. When he (the husband) knows, at first he didn't talk to her wife directly. He just stunned at himself and repressed all what he has seen inside his mind. Imagine you saw something ruined your life and you just repressed it in your mind soon it will blow up. When it blows up, you unconsciously did something out of your mind. This actually what happened on the husband. He unconsciously murdered his own wife because he can't admit the reality. When he was doing the murder, his daughter saw it. She saw her father as Charlie. Because Charlie had behavior opposite of her father. He (Charlie) is very talkative rather than her own father.
Like I mentioned above, the father is suffering from mental disease called Multiple Personality Disorder. What it is actually. From Cleveland Clinic website, Dissociative identity disorder (DID) was formerly called multiple personality disorder. It is a mental illness that involves disruptions or breakdowns of memory, awareness, identity and/or perception. The condition is further explained here.
To be honest, this movie is terribly cool. I give rating 4 out of 5. This movie is not only presenting about entertainment but also education on mental disease. Last word, dare to watch, dare to review.
