General impression: Michael Flanegan, the screenwriter of Ghosts on the Hill (TV series), has already worked on the adaptation of Geralds Game, also based on the novel by Stephen King. This time I decided to take up a large-scale project called “Doctor’s Dream”, the creator fit in 151 minutes of suspense, intrigue, atmosphere.
A huge mission was assigned to his shoulders, to show not only a full-fledged story about the boy Danny, who is now a man, but also to deploy to the audience a solid canvas from the film “Shine” from Stanley Kubrick. Indeed, then, in 1980, Kubrick with a degree of perfectionism approached his work, breathing in the gloomy atmosphere of the Overluk Hotel with frightening and bewitching notes of sound. Already for Flanegan a difficult task, but did he cope? Of course, having worked in detail and written the script in a duet with King, the director was able to register the main line and wave the fans to ÂShine.
You can divide the picture invisibly into three parts, in which there is an introduction of about 40 minutes – they tell what happened to Danny after he and his mother escaped from a terrible hotel. And actually, how is the name “Doctor’s Dream” connected with Danny. The grown-up Danny Torrens is played by Ewan McGregor – an ideally matched actor, who easily transforms from a person into a binge, where there is a clear transition of despair and a fight against addiction – in the future the bottle and comparison with his father are repeatedly indicated in the picture, and to a mentor friend who should help the little girl Abre, who has mystical powers of enormous proportions.
After 40 minutes, the viewer gets to know the Âshining girl closer, realizing that she is a tough nut, but still a child. There are several antagonists, itÂs more likely to call a whole gang – they prey on people like Danny and Abra, killing in the most cruel ways, eat children, taking away their Âradiance, but Rebecca Ferguson (Rose) rightfully occupies the central solo. Her character attracts and alarms at the same time, frightening with her crazy smile, comes the understanding that a woman is ready for anything in order to achieve the goal, which is what is happening.
The cast can only be praised, that in a pair, that one by one, everyone looks in their place, carrying away with their game, which is noteworthy here, each character is frightened.
And the final chapter in a good 40 minutes, becomes a smooth transition for the viewer, taking away into the distance the road to a dark hotel. The same oppressive music, the same snow drifts, the labyrinth and howls of the wind seemed to blow back in 1980. Fans of the Shine will be pleased, because the “greetings” scattered around the hotel, like a rabbit from a hat, where you are waiting for the trick, like a little child in impatience.
The atmosphere of Doctors Dream attracts attention and skillfully switches between locations, it is a quality study of the central characters, well-chosen music that skillfully focuses on the emotions of the hero, escalating fear or a fraction of suspense. And the finale of the picture is perfect, the way it is needed, the final one, a little waltzing, it is played out with a curtsy, coming to the beginning of the tape, but still this is the end.
Flanegan definitely coped with the task, scattering everything on the shelves and beating the plot. Not really horrors, but this is the advantage of the tape, screamers already in so many different films, but here the picture nostalgically transfers to the past, it takes beautifully with the visual, focusing on the heroes and their problems. This is important for the story.
