A slick, fast moving satire on the film industry's the holy grail: a hot script
21 April 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw New Suit at a student screening. The movie is a slick, fast moving satire on the film industry's the holy grail: a hot script.

This is a little movie that packs a lot into what I was told a One Million Dollar budget. The lead character, a hapless D-boy, JORDAN BRIDGES (development assistant/staff reader) stuck in a thankless job is charming and likeable from the get go. In fact, he may make a lot of the aspiring D-Boys nervous, since he has the routine down pat. The humor in the story has as tongue in cheek quality to it, and is a refreshing change from all the indie films that are trying way too hard to be "cool." Heather Donahue shows her comedy chops and is a majo, especially since her other big role was the from Blair Witch.

I may be the only one who sees this flick as a homage to CANDIDE in many ways. But, what the hell, I had a good time. The D.P, rocks, especially since he clearly had to make every shot count working on such a tight time frame and budget.
