GLASS (Movie Review)


Some people believe that they're heroes with extraordinary powers. But Dr. Ellie Staple calls that idea a comic book-fueled delusion of grandeur. She's convinced, in fact, that such fantasies often arise out traumas from deluded people's painful childhoods.

Dr. Staple has become quite famous for her theory. Because of that, she's been given the opportunity to work with three very special cases.

Kevin Crumb is a murderer with some 23 distinct personalities. One of those transforms Kevin into a hulking, vein-popping, wall-climbing killer that his other personalities call the Beast. But really, isn't it all just an amazing feat of self-delusion stemming from the man's abuse at the hands of his mother as a child? Dr. Staple tries to convince him. (Or, perhaps more accurately, them, as she talks to the likes of Patricia, Hedwig, Barry, Jade, Orwell, Heinrich or Norma—just a few of the personalities who manifest through the young man.)

The second subject is David Dunn. He nearly drowned as a boy. And because of this near-death experience, this now gray-haired man has not only convinced himself that he is physically indestructible, but also that he is super strong and has the ability to psychically sense when someone is a villain. (It's a claim that has some validity, however, as David was the sole survivor of a horrific train crash many years before.)

The third subject, Elijah Price, or Mr. Glass as he calls himself, is an unfortunate elderly man plagued with osteogenesis imperfecta, a brittle bone disease that cause his limbs to shatter at the slightest impact. In spite of his physical infirmities, or more likely because of them, the hyper-intelligent mastermind is arguably the most dangerous and disturbed of the three. He wholeheartedly believes that comic books have chronicled the existence of powered-up heroes and villains, like him and his fellow inmates, for decades.

Dr. Staple is having none of it. She employs logic and science to refute these damaged patients' superhero delusions. She prods them to see that the "facts" they have been basing their beliefs on are completely false. And in the cases of Kevin and David, they're beginning to wonder if she's right.

Mr. Glass, however, isn't convinced. So he may soon require a … procedure on his brain to make him more mentally malleable. A simple, but very effective procedure.

What this self-assured psychologist doesn't realize, however, is that Mr. Glass—who's drugged most of the time to keep him from causing trouble—has plans of his own. He's quietly working on a plan to stoke the Beast into slaughtering rage and to send David Dunn out to rescue thousands from the man's superhuman fury. If this imbecilic doctor wants to see some proof of who the three of them really are, he'll give it to her.

Then the whole world will witness what real superpower looks like.
