Great movie
10 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really liked this movie. Seemed like a regular indie movie about self-centered young adults, but really became something else. The movie quickly runs away with itself. I just read the Ebert review. He said Kwikstop "follows its characters where they insist on going". I agree with him that this is what makes the movie surprising and fun.

It is curious too how the characters "grow up" during the movie. In a way the film-making and acting also mature as the film continues. It goes from quick and self-conscious in the acting and camera-work to long static jim-jarmusch (stranger than paradise) like shots and virtuoso performances. It is really strange. By the end you feel like you are in a different film altogether. I had that feeling of inevitability watching the characters struggle that all good fiction gives me.

Also there is a monologue in this by the character Emil (Rich Komenich) that I have just watched a hundred times. Totally gives me chills every time. Just brilliant.

I would totally see more movies by these people.
