Storyline

Julian Jons is a talented but troubled young artist. He has just been released from an asylum, where he has spent the last seven years for the murder of Anna, his girlfriend/model. Attempting to start painting again, he is pursued by journalist Jennifer Cole, who is intrigued by this complex, brooding man. Against the backdrop of the modern art world, she begins to dig into the past, fully aware that it holds painful memories for Julian, and perhaps danger for herself.

The Dull Side Of Genius
1 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Perhaps this should have been titled, "The Dull Side Of Genius," because that's what the film turned out to be....very, very dull with sophomoric dialog. Perhaps being young, stupid and easily impressionable might make this film look "cool." Or perhaps, watching top actors like Brent Fraser, Finola Hughes and Moon Zappa - people who have become household names, might inspire you to think highly of this garbage....er, film.

Maybe it's just sleazy characters and gratuitous sex scenes that turn you on. Whatever, they are all here. The fact I am only the third person to comment on this "dud" and that it has a rating of 2.9 out of 10, says something.
