A man (Dylan Knight) is walking the woods, riddled by self-doubt, to
such an extent that he thinks his fears are following him in the flesh (as
portrayed by Alex Reed), out to rip his heart from his chest. But how will
he live without a heart?
The Isolated Heart is not
exactly a narrative movie, so if above synopsis sounds a bit odd, that's
why. Instead it's a wonderful moodpiece, set to a deliberately sad poem by
Lisa Marie that really digs deep, emotionally, and accompanies the
on-screen action beautifully without just duplicating it in words. And the
images are fittingly lyrical for sure, combining horror with melancholy in
a rather beautiful way. Now it might not exactly be an uplifting film, but
it's worth a watch for sure!
