I worked for the director and would like to congratulate him on winning the race and finishing his film in high style!
31 October 2003 | by See all my reviews

As a woman who has worked on 3 short films and 2 feature endeavors, I can safely state that working for Kevin Ackerman has refreshed my memory as to why I ever wanted to make movies in the first place. Assisting him at various times during post production, in setting up his company, seeing how he struggled on a day-to-day basis, always trying to make this little half hour film better...I have never met someone as committed as he was and is.

The film, LONELY PLACE, exists as a polished first short, evocative of a time and place, faithful to the Film Noir genre Kevin so loves (and has studied extensively), purposefully un-flashy and somehow extremely mature. I watched the films Kevin told me were influences on LONELY PLACE while he finished it this last year -- The Postman Always Rings Twice, Repulsion, all the Hitchcocks etc. -- and I respect his choice to make a small film about three people inhabiting one space, a farmhouse, but with a larger thematic issue at stake: What is at the core of Marriage if, in fact, there isn't Love? And what would you do if, after giving 20 years to a man, living and working hard for him, you found out that he didn't love or even respect you? LONELY PLACE tackles the difficult premise, weaves a web, has fun with what one woman might do in a bygone era, given just such knowledge of her partner...not an easy thing to do in a half hour!

LONELY PLACE will, undoubtedly, play well in festivals and Kevin's career will fluorish in the aftermath. Of this much I am certain. I sign off for the last time, the night before my return home overseas, thankful for my time here in the United States working with such talented artists like kevin and all the rest. See LONELY PLACE!
