Pauline has some delusions of being a great surgeon, and she also has some horrific dreams that she actually finds “stimulating” to say the least. Her family put up with her delusions and her school classmates find her annoying. But as this is all happening around her she has a plan, a plan that will leave them all shocked, and some people may not survive.
Plot: Alienated teen Pauline struggles with the pressures of fitting into high school, pleasing her mother and a burning desire to lose her virginity. With a grotesque curiosity for the darker side of life, Pauline is considered a social outcast by everyone around her. Enticed by flesh, she retreats into her own fantasies and hopes to become a great surgeon – that is, if she doesn’t go insane first.

This film played as part of the 2012 Sydney Film Festival’s “Freak Me Out” section. Director, Richard Bates Jr, set out to make a movie that he and his friends would have loved to watch in high school. This he’s achieved and so much more.
From the outset, Excision seizes your attention, with its deliciously macabre imagery and malevolent audio track. Unfolding amidst the perfect banality of middle class suburbia, the stage is set for a savage assault on your sensibilities.
Annalynne McCord is fantastic as Pauline – the slouched, ragged, blemished, sociopathic, vexed atheist, sangrephile*, virgin with surgical aspirations and necrophilic fantasies.
In fairness, the entire cast is impressive. You need to keep in mind that this film is the debut feature for a 25 y/o and he claims that persistence worked a charm in signing the talent — including an Academy Award Winner!
But it’s the fantasy sequences that will leave you truly in awe of Excision. Pauline’s dreams are tantalisingly lurid, so utterly vile — yet shot so beautifully. Luminous and vibrant, these scenes impact and leave a stain that won’t come out in a cold wash. In fact, at least one person passed out at the screening I attended — for real.
Far from wallowing in this depravity, Excision succeeds in exploring complex relationships, themes of religious zealotry and how problematic being a self-taught expert can be. All this and a killer soundtrack to boot.
I have to add that I had the extraordinary privilege of enjoying the greatest Q&A session in Sydney Film Festival history! Richard Bates was “slightly intoxicated” and proceeded to share some outrageous stories with us all. It caused a slight scandal, but, given the content of the film we all came to watch, his conduct was completely acceptable. Moreover, it was rare to see a person be so genuine and hysterically funny.
With his next project in the works, Richard Bates Jr just might be a name to keep an eye out for. I mean, if Peter Jackson can start with Bad Taste…I’m just sayin’… 😉
More importantly, for those of you with a taste for twisted film making – Excision is a must see.
*sangrephile – I made this up because I couldn’t find a word for someone who loves blood & isn’t a vampire!
A terrible ‘look at me acting’ performance
Excision feels like a threadbare short film padded out to feature length and low and behold it’s an expanded version of the director’s short. It’s an annoyingly angsty film about a social misfit who wants to be a surgeon and the whole film is just filler until the final scene. Perhaps that would be fine in the short film, but this is unbearable. We are also subjected to an atrocious performance by AnnaLynne McCord who seems to be juggling tics, facial expressions and acting with a capital ‘A’. A terrible ‘look at me acting’ performance, made even more cartoonish from her over the top zit makeup. This is the kind of character that needs a strong director to modulate the performance and reign it in to be effective. The film is fine to look at. It’s shot in a very classy way — slow, well composed moves — which makes McCord’s performance at even more right angles to the film. Everyone downplays their role and the look of the film is very grounded and then here’s this ridiculous actress who couldn’t have played her role any more broad. It tries to be edgy and artful – it really does try, but Excision is immature junk.
