Surprisingly Good
21 December 2000 | by See all my reviews

I didn't expect to like this movie. Drugs do not fascinate me. So, was I surprised when I found myself liking everything about the film: acting, directing, music, camera. Each scene stands on its own feet, each character is interesting and well-played. "Maryjane" can teach movie makers a thing or two about the seventh art! Firstly: don't be so crisp and neat. Compared with "Maryjane" most other films are laughably polished, yet they fall short of art. "Rebel Without a Cause" is too pretty to be artistically successful. The clockwork is too obvious. The same goes for countless other movies, especially "Laura". "Maryjane" has that rare dreamy quality of "Carnival of Souls". Without trying hard, it achieves something ineffable. It's a shame that this movie, which represents the best of that unique, slouching late sixties esthetics is not available on DVD or even video.
