Reviewed on 2/16/2009...
Really intriguing story about a woman with agoraphobia who takes in a tenant that may be a cannabalistic serial killer. It's not really a horror movie as the cover would lead you to believe, but more of a thriller.

Psychological Thriller with a Catholic Slant
Patrick McGee | 09/13/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This movie is a taut psychological thriller that is brilliantly directed by Mari Kornhauser. The ending will not be what you expect. As the earlier reviewer said, it's really about trauma, but more importantly about the difficulty of relationship in a world where trauma has become the normal situation. I don't want to give anything away, but there is a subtle but significant Catholic slant to this movie, which seems appropriate to its New Orleans location. You don't see much of New Orleans because the camera mostly explores interior psychological space, but somehow Kornhauser's visual language brings the feeling of New Orleans into this confined world. Kornhauser's direction owes something to Polanski maybe but also to De Palma without any of the over-the-top violence. A movie not to be missed! Oh yeah, Peter Sarsgard is good too in one of his early roles, along with Wressnig and the too-rarely-seen Irish actress, Angeline Ball (Imelda Quirke in THE COMMITMENTS). But the star of this movie is Kornhauser."
"Kitchen Privileges"
Frank Turner III | Marina Del Rey, CA | 05/07/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

""Kitchen Privileges" is a movie that was actually filmed in my home located in the View Park section of Los Angeles, California. The director did an excellent job of selecting a cast that worked well together in presenting the story of a young woman struggling with a mental illness. The traumatic event of being raped triggers a "fear of the market place" with auditory and hallucinations that are brought under control by her affection for a young man that rents a room in her home. Very well done but poorly publicised. Frank Turner III"
Great Thriller
JAMES O'HERN | New Orleans | 09/26/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a great psychological thriller. It is a dark film with obvious roots in New Orleans. I believe Mari Kornhauser is a fine director, writer and ever one should give this movie a look."
