“Tarsem, the director, I think he is such a visual director. He had such an idea of what these bizarre images that he wanted to put in there and kind of going inside the mind of the killer, what that would look like, and what it would be like. First, I‘m in this little boy’s mind, and it’s like all fairy tales and beautiful deserts and costumes. [Then] I drop into the mind of this killer, and it’s, like, the images are so surreal, and in a way beautiful but disgusting, and it’s really an interesting movie because there were no limits,” said the Hollywood star.
The psychological thriller premiered months after Lopez wore the iconic green Versace dress on the red carpet of the 42nd Annual Grammy Awards, and when she started to embrace the nickname JLo.
Starring by Lopez, Vince Vaughn, and Vincent D’Onofrio, The Cell is a science fiction psychological horror film that tells the story of scientists using technology to crash the mind of a serial killer in a coma. Using a “Neurological Cartography and Synaptic Transfer System” device, the doctors are trying to investigate where the murderer hid his latest victim.
Tarsem Singh directed the movie, and critics praised its visuals, direction, and make-up; however, some reviews highlighted how the plot was very similar to Silence of the Lambs, a 1991 psychological horror film directed by Jonathan Demme. Despite de mixed reviews, the $33 million budget film gross over $104 million.
Jennifer Lopez started her acting career in 1986 when she was cast in My Little Girl, a low-budget movie about success, however, her breakthrough came after she portrayed Selena Quintanilla in the biographical musical drama film of the same name.
From romantic drama to her most recent film, Hustlers, as of this writing, “The Bronx Diva” has appeared in at least 37 movies.
