Buddy Boy

Living in a preposterously dingy apartment with a psychotic and revolting step mother, a teen discovers a peephole then develops an actual relationship with the object of his peeping tom obsession.

He soon sees her engage in questionable and contradictory behavior, all the while slowly tracking down a missing girl he's seen on the back of a milk carton through his job at a photo processing center.

However, he can never seem to verify what he sees, and the audience eventually learns that what he sees does not match reality... but it remains, what is real and what is his delusion?

This irreality is intermingled with his fervent belief in god and the Catholic Church.

"A teen spends free time spying on a neighbor." Starring Aidan Gillen, Emmanuelle Seigner, Susan Tyrrell, Mark Boone Jr., Harry Groener, Hector Elias. Directed by Mark D. Hanlon. 1999. 104 mins.
