What to Watch

My first recommendation

 

NUMB  stars Matthew Perry star of the former NBC hit Friends as Hudson a writer struggling with depersonalization. Perry gives a bravura performance in this dramatic film  that seems to mirror his own personal battles. When Hudson falls in love with Sara, played by Lynn Collins,  his desire to get better gets to be almost as compulsive as his own illness. He encounters many quack psychologists, including actress Mary Steenburgen , who plays a psychologist who uses sex as part of her treatment program. Hudson finally realizes that his illness is just part of the problem .  Kevin Pollak also takes a turn as the supportive friend and business partner.  NUMB was a selection for the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival and is available on dvd.
