Unusual attempt at respectability from A.I.P.
7 October 2003 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

One of the few in-house productions of American International Pictures during its last few years, "Dragonfly" (a.k.a. "One Summer Love", as it currently plays on cable) was one of its first attempts to cater to a more mainstream audience without any exploitive elements. It's not a bad movie - the premise is one with promise (even keeping us very interested for its first part as it slowly peels away the mystery clouding the situation.) And Sarandon is pretty good as a sympathetic yet very human woman. Bridges is pretty uneven - his symptoms don't seem constant for any real mental illness

  • but occasionally he really nails it. The problem is that it's hard to


sympathize, or even understand, a character who himself seems confused and not sure of what he wants most of the time! It's also jarring how the movie starts off to what seems to be a focus on the relationship between Bridges and Sarandon, then suddenly writes her out of almost the rest of the movie. The climatic moment also has some unfortunate unintended laughs. Still, I can't say that I found the movie, uneven as it is, boring at any moment.
