Storyline

"Eyeball Eddie" is the story of the stormy relationship between a prosthetic glass eye and the insecure boy stuck behind it. What follows is a dark comedy about the price of popularity. In the world of high-school wrestling, there is only the strong and the weak - and EDDIE MALICK may be the weakest you've ever seen. Shy, scrawny, and perpetually body-slammed, Eddie seems as fragile and pathetic as his own morbid glass eye. But when that eye accidently pops out during a match, Eddie seizes the moment, pins his horrified opponent to the mat - and suddenly realizes that the perfect strategy for victory sits in his socket. Of course, as Eddie continues to exploit this advantage, word of his victories spreads through the school - and Eddie becomes a freakish sensation. The bleachers fill with fans eager to see another Eyeball Eddie gross-out show - and while this sudden celebrity status has long been his dream, Eddie begins to worry...is my eyeball becoming more popular than I am?

Martin Starr pins this film.

I saw this film at the Stony Brook Film Festival. Martin Starr of Freaks and Geeks fame gives an incredible performance. He plays, Eddie Malick, a weak insecure high school wrestler with a prosthetic eye. However, when his eye accidentally pops out during a match, Eddie seizes the moment, pins his shocked opponent and suddenly realizes that the strategy for winning sits in his eye. I hope to see more of Martin Starr in the future. M. Emmet Walsh, who has been in many films through the years, gives a good performance as Eddie's coach. Mr. Walsh has played a coach in the past and I can see why director Elizabeth Allen wanted him in this role. Elizabeth Allen does a great job in directing her first film. Veteran director Cary Fleder must be proud of Ms. Allan's work since it appears he has been a mentor of hers. On a personal note, it is good to see another Ward Melville graduate doing so well, especially in the world of film.
