Secret Window, Secret Garden : Movie Review

Secret Window, Secret Garden (2004)Secret Window introduces us to Mort Rainey (Johnny Depp), an unkempt author who is holed up in an isolated cabin somewhere in the woods, trying to use writing as a form of self-therapy to forget the infidelity of his soon-to-be ex-wife, Amy (Maria Bello). Mort's life is a mess, but it's soon to become even messier. One afternoon, an ominous man calling himself John Shooter (John Turturro) arrives as Mort's door and claims that Mort plagiarized one of his stories. Mort is incredulous, and immediately dismisses the man. But Shooter will not be put off so easily, and he begins to stalk Mort, threatening dire consequences if the writer does not come to terms with him, then acting on his threats when Mort refuses to capitulate.
