Excellent Work
23 February 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I thought Suddenly Naked was a clever and intelligent piece of film-making. My only real negative was the lead's character development near the end. Things happened too suddenly. I understand and appreciate "moments of realization" but this felt too easy.

Other than this one negative I did appreciate how much was accomplished on a moderate budget. It's a shame how few people are exposed to such works. This film, unlike most, allows the audience to actually think. You consider social barriers and self image. I found myself wondering on the weight I give to opinion of others.

Locations were excellent as was casting. It is difficult to compare this to other films such as Harold and Maude as it is not such a romp. I do think, however, that those who appreciated Harold and Maude may enjoy this film.

I will watch Suddenly Naked a second time. That is the best evidence of how I feel about this film.
