Apparently, men in insane asylums convicted of decapitating their wives are now considered “the catch of the day.” At least they are in director David Mackenzie’s latest criminally dysfunctional film. Natasha Richardson stars as the lonely, and obviously confused, wife of the new superintendent at London’s maximum-security psychiatric asylum, who falls for the aforementioned insane inmate. While her husband battles an overly jealous co-worker, the little wife is helping this R-rated film lean closer to an NC-17 rating with her sexual affair. This film was written by Patrick Marber, who also wrote last year’s acclaimed Closer. However, his latest screenplay isn’t nearly as deft and fine-tuned as his earlier work. Asylum should be committed for being criminally inept.
