"Secret Window"

This movie leaves me thinking, maybe things are not always what they seem.....
“Secret Window” is one of those typical Stephen King thriller, murder, mystery, and just let your imagination go type of movies. I thought Johnny Depp was great in his role as Mort, the writer suffering from, you guessed it, writer’s block. Not to mention he is going through a divorce, and trying to kick the smoking habit.
The other really incredible role was the creepy / sinister man named Shooter, played by John Turturro. Shooter seemed to be there for the sole purpose of antagonizing Mort to the fullest! As the movie progresses, Depp’s character becomes more complex, and left me to guess who he really was. If you like Johnny Depp, and or Stephen King, this is a great pick for you. On the other hand, if you don’t like the mystery of Stephen King books or movies, then this is not the movie for you.
