Suture (1993) - Scott McGehee, David Siegel [Amazon.com] [FR] [DE] [UK]


Brothers Vincent (rich) and Clay (poor) meet up for the first time after their father's funeral and remark on how similar they look. But unknown to Clay, who thinks his life is taking a turn for the better, Vince is actually plotting to kill him with a car bomb and pass the corpse off as his own, planning to start a new life elsewhere with his father's inheritance. But Clay survives the blast and has his face, memory and identity restored in hospital... but are they the right ones?

Amazon customer review:
While I have some stylistic qualms about Suture, and several complaints about the acting, the film is an intriguing study of how we view films and identity. In some sense, it echoes Godard and the Brecht alienation effect by using the fact that Clay and Vincent are different races--something that we as an audience immediately see, but no other characters ever recognize-- to establish that we are watching a performance. In a film called Suture, we are never "sutured" into the narrative structure. -- Ianfidel for imdb.com
