the hilarious trials of a struggling novelist
13 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Chapter Zero is a witty and intelligent comedy from new filmmaker Aaron Mendelsohn. The film takes the viewer through a journey from self-pity to self-discovery in a humorous introspective analysis. Adam Lazarus is forced to examine his relationship with his girlfriend and the direction of his life when a disappointing manuscript cripples his ambition. Adam proceeds to isolate himself from the world, dictating every event of his life, starting with his birth, to a video camera that passes no judgments. However, his usually supportive girlfriend becomes frustrated when Adam disconnects from the world. Don't miss this thought-provoking gem of an independent film that will keep you laughing.
