Realistic But Dull
1 April 2004 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

"Reed" has a number of strengths, including its realistic presentation, good B/W photography, and location work.

However, the film is exceptionally boring. There are extended (and repeated) shots of Reed doing nothing more than walking or running. Similarly, we see him sitting and bathing for prolonged periods.

It's one thing to avoid sensationalism, but to linger on so many everyday actions is a mistake -- even if they are symbolic or somehow representative of the film's themes of cowardice, engagement, etc.

In the end, it doesn't add up to much, although there are a few striking moments.

6/10
