Ive never been a Friedkin fan and I can live without an Exorcist DVD.Bug depicts another kind of possession ,and it shows paranoia as few other movies did (Polanski did it in the tenant in 1976).The performances are great ;Ashley Judd plays a part few of her peers would dare: she is matched every step of the way by Michael Shannon .Both,towards the end,reach the extreme limit and their shouting voices are hardly intelligible.From the very start,Judd seems jaded,tired of the world,with no reason to live .Even when you feel safe,you know theres an impending menace ;today we live in a world where nobody can say it wont happen to me .The Army experiments (a subject which was already broached in the brilliant Jacobs ladder ) are only an alibi ,and anyway,are they real?We see danger where there isnt any and we swallow a pill to soothe our fears .One blip (here a tiny bug) is enough to bring everything grinding to the halt… or to trigger madness ,a madness which will know no bounds .
