Directed by: Karen Arthur
Actors: Lee Grant, Carol Kane and Will Geer
Also known as: Deviation, The Cage, My Sister, My Love, Don’t Ring the Doorbell
Description: Two strange sisters live in a crumbling mansion, where they keep a pet ape, which belonged to their late father, locked in a cage. While one of the sisters seems to be keeping her head on straight, as it were, the other appears to be sinking further and further into barbarism and insanity.
It’s hard for me to say anything bad about this movie except for the fact that it seems to be a “lost” or “set aside” piece of cinema that not many have seen. (not sure if it has been released on DVD or not) Everything from the rich colors, the acting, and the story line lead to a film that seems to depress the individual as a previous review stated, haha. I personally enjoy when a movie, music or any piece of art actually makes you “feel” emotions. This is one of those movies that should not be missed or taken lightly. Carol Kane is amazing in her role as Cissy.
