Trivia

Was originally planned as a 50-minute film centered around the "Dear Jenny" storyline. Realizing the impossibilities of selling and distributing a 50-minute film, the director wrote the second segment ("Love, Trevor") which filled out the story to feature length. See more »

Solid first film by talented writer director
7 February 2003 | by (Mount Shasta, CA) – See all my reviews

If you want to be able to say in the future that you spotted Mark Kines' talent early -- see his first film, "Foreign Correspondents." My guess is he will go on to make many great movies. Like most first attempts, "F.C." has some flaws, but they are minor. What counts is that it's, in the end, fresh, creative and a pleasure to spend 102 minutes with. Be sure and get the DVD format, because the director's comments version of the film will add a great deal to your enjoyment and understanding. If you like movies at all and enjoy watching an outstanding talent develop, don't miss Mark Kines', "Foreign Correspondents." Oh yes, I do have a quibble with the title, I think it should be "Foreign Correspondence" -- that would be a better play on the double meaning. See it, you'll like it.
