Filmmaking is Dylan Thomas Everett's life. Despite the lackluster response he gets for his latest feature, Metamorphosis, he can't do anything else. His wife Zoe, and friend Sam, the lead actors in Metamorphosis, know this as well, and they stand by him through his agonizing bouts of depression, anger and frustration. Written by
I felt this film possessed all of the attributes you would normally find in works of very high esteem- it was a very well crafted tale, and actually gave much insight into the whole process of the craft itself while not abandoning the fact that the story remained very, very human. Nothing about the process was glossed over, but rather a realism was conveyed about how a REAL film family would, could, should, and often does work without all of the cheese you see in places like "Project Greenlight" or any other for- mass-consumption 'Viacom nightmares'. It is actually more reminiscent of "Day for Night"...only it feels much more real.
Truffaut would be proud if he were here to see this film- my only complaint (hence the 9) was that I did not get to meet the director, Christopher E. Brown, as he was not at the showing...otherwise this is the pinnacle of 'indy' filmmaking.
