ART OF OBSESSION (2017): Movie Trailer: Ry Barrett Gets Artistic Inspiration From A Dangerous Source

Art Of Obsession Trailer

The first movie trailer for Art of Obsession (2017) from The Art of Obsession Productions and Blackguardism Creations. The teaser is my first exposure to the film, but like Kidnap, I gotta say it doesn’t leave me wondering why I’ve never heard of this movie. Between the cringeworthy voiceovers, shoddy dialogue, and confused editing, I know very much why.

Starring Ry Barrett as a writer who has given up on life, the trailer shows him do shockingly little other than look surprised and get pushed around by other characters. In fact, it seems to be all about Winnie Clarke‘s character Patricia, who appears to be a nightmare version of a manic pixie dream girl. Opening up with a line about how the “conflict of an artist’s struggle is akin to a Shakespearean tragedy,” it’s hard to find anything more tragic than the try-hard writing and Clarke’s pathetically put-on inflections.

But wait, there’s more! After showing us an incoherent jumble of hostile interactions between the characters, the trailer ends by cutting to black before the movie’s title fades in and Barrett declares off-screen, “This is me at my most misanthropic.” Wow, looks like we got a real edgelord here.

Ryan M. Andrew‘s Art of Obsession (2017) also stars Raven Cousens, Jessica Vano, Timothy Paul McCarthy, Brian McDonald, Margaret Jeronimo, Keegan Chambers, Megan Liedo, and Monika Meyer.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
