Suture is a psychological thriller movie from 1993 which centers around the story of two identical twins who lead very different lives. The movie was directed by Scott McGehee and David Siegel and starred actors such as Dennis Haysbert, Mel Harris, and Sab Shimono. Clay Arlington (Dennis Haysbert) and Vincent Towers (Michael Harris) are identical twins, but that's where their similarities end. Clay, the black sheep of the family, lives luxuriously in Los Angeles and is a successful businessman, while Vincent lives a simple life in Phoenix and is a struggling car thief.

One day, Vincent fakes his own death in a car crash and Clay comes to identify the body. However, it is evident that the body is not Clay's, and Vincent has altered his appearance enough to fool everyone else, including the police. Declared dead, Clay inherits Vincent's debts and possessions. Clay now finds himself at a crossroads, confronted with an opportunity to start over again or continue his current life.

Clay's situation is complicated further when he receives a visit from a wealthy, well-dressed woman, Renee Descartes (Sab Shimono). This woman claims to be his lover, and after some convincing, Clay starts to believe her story. However, Renee's presence creates additional problems when she clashes with Clay's best friend, Surgeon (Steven Matzinger), who insists that Clay is not the man Renee is claiming to know.

As the movie progresses, Clay's reality becomes more and more blurred as he tries to navigate between his past and his new life. As doubts continue to grow, Clay discovers the web of lies that surround him.

Suture is a movie that plays with the idea of identity and questions the legitimacy of our perceptions of others. The movie deals with the themes of power, manipulation, and human relationships. It is shot in black and white, which enhances the movie's stark visuals and emphasizes the moral ambiguity of the characters. The dialogue is sharp and intelligent, providing a provocative commentary on the ways in which people interact with and manipulate each other.

One of the movie's unique features is its use of non-traditional casting constraints. By casting a black actor in a role originally written for a white actor, the actors' physical features take a backseat to the movie's thematic concepts. The movie criticizes the idea of an 'essential' human while promoting the importance of individuality and distinction.

In conclusion, Suture is an exciting and thought-provoking thriller that explores themes of disguise and deception. It is an unconventional and intellectually stimulating movie that challenges the viewer to think deeply about their assumptions and perceptions of identity. It creates an otherworldly experience with its surreal visuals, and the thought-provoking dialogue will keep the audience hooked throughout the movie.

Suture is a 1994 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 36 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.5.
