more than just another funny movie about Hollywood
23 April 2003 | by (united states) – See all my reviews

We all the know the story of "The Emperor's New Clothes"...of course the first time we heard it in Elementary School, the most fascinating part was that the guy walked through town naked. With age comes (some) sophistication. I'm talking about my experience screening a hilarious new independent film called "New Suit", based roughly on the old story, but set in modern Hollywood. I was fascinated by this film's ability to be so funny, yet so suspenseful at the same time. Just who will be the one (symbolically) naked in the end? The answer here will surprise you. I love Independent film. Like a growing number of people, I'm sick to death of being spoon-fed the latest studio comedy. On the other hand, there is also a small, but vocal group in Hollywood coming straight out of film school with plenty of disdain but no real ideas or experience for making a difference in Independent film. Happily, New Suit is a TRUE Independent film - a small movie with a clever script and unique characters, played by likeable actors that you recognize, but aren't sick of - and ultimately you get the feeling that there is a small group of talented filmmakers here having fun making us laugh.
