Hypnotic | Alice Braga Gives Her Thoughts On Robert Rodriguez’s Latest Passion Project | Exclusive


The latest film from fan-favorite filmmaker Robert Rodriguez, “Hypnotic” hits theaters this weekend. The film stars Ben Affleck and Alice Braga in a story that is full of twists and turns as what is real and what is all in your head is constantly changing. One constant is for sure, Affleck’s Danny Rourke is determined to find his missing daughter.


“Hypnotic” is a passion project for Rodriguez, just like many of his other unique films. He had been working on this one since 2002. Meaning this film took over 20 years to make it to the big screen. He was inspired by the re-release of a restored widescreen version of Hitchcock’s 1958 classic “Vertigo”.

With the release of “Hypnotic” in theaters, LRM Online’s Manny Gomez spoke with the lead actress in the film, Alice Braga. She plays a character named Diana Cruz, a gifted psychic that you meet early on in the film.

During our conversation, Braga shares with us her thoughts on the story by Rodriguez. We also joke about the difficulty of covering a film like this when almost any question could lead to a massive spoiler are things are constantly evolving. Braga goes on to also give us her opinion on hypnosis and how she prepared for the role. It’s a great conversation that you can check out below!


Here is the synopsis for Ketchup Entertainment’s Hypnotic

Determined to find his missing daughter, Austin detective Danny Rourke instead finds himself spiraling down a rabbit hole while investigating a series of reality-bending bank robberies where he will ultimately call into question his most basic assumptions about everything and everyone in his world.

Aided by Diana Cruz, an unnervingly gifted psychic, Rourke simultaneously pursues and is pursued by a lethal specter – the one man he believes holds the key to finding the missing girl – only to discover more than he ever bargained for.

Ketchup Entertainment’s “Hypnotic” is now playing in theaters.
