The Mind-Bending Early Films Of Alejandro Amenábar

As of today, May 10th, you can check out the new thriller REGRESSION starring Ethan Hawke and Emma Watson on Blu-Ray, DVD, Digital HD and On Demand. The flick takes place in Minnesota in 1990 and Hawke plays Detective Bruce Kenner, who is investigating a young girl’s accusation of abuse at the hands of her father, John Gray. He confesses to the crime despite not having any recollection of it, so Kenner brings in a psychologist to try to uncover the truth, but there may be more at play than initially thought. Check out the trailer below:

The thing that has me intrigued for this particular movie, besides the stellar cast, is it’s the latest from Chilean director Alejandro Amenábar. The filmmaker has been making films now for over 20 years, but with the release of REGRESSION, I wanted to shine the spotlight on some of his earliest work, which to this day remain some of my all-time favorite foreign films.
