Naive D+ flick
14 March 2002 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"Slaves to the Underground", a grungy and immature flick about some young Seattle slacker-types with issues, is unable to escape the naivete of the creative forces behind it. Built around a story about a sexually and otherwise confused girl with two lovers and no qualities which would explain one lover, this flick also makes shallow and off-target attempts at social commentary and is fraught with awful music. "Slaves...." underscores one axiom: A film can be no smarter than the people who make it. Not recommendable.
