A brilliant med student, Mary, down on her luck and out for revenge, drops out of med school and takes her surgeon skills to the streets by opening a body modification business. You don’t know what to expect going into this film. It’s really about alternative lifestyles. Some paths lead to a better way of life and others will get you into trouble.
I really appreciate the way the filmmakers respected people with body modifications and allowing people to define themselves the way they see fit. The make-up artists particularly did a great job making the body modifications for the film.
My favourite part of American Mary is that it’s creepy, but not disgusting. I was expecting to see a lot more blood and gore than what was actually shown. It is a perfectly twisted world and the makings of good cinema.
