Storyline

Think New York is tough? Imagine it a hundred times faster. Except for you. Welcome to Slo-Mo. Struggling through a bad case of writer's block, lazy Alex (Simpson) arrives home to find that his girlfriend Chloe (Marotz) has left him, his apartment is completely empty, and he's still only on the first page of his novel. Feeling like the whole world has left him behind, Alex storms outside to realize that it actually has. The entire city is rushing past him in fast motion. Dodging his way around zooming pedestrians and oncoming taxis, Alex stumbles upon The School for the Motionally Retarded. In class, Alex discovers rebel chick Raven (Moennig) and a group of other down-trodden 'slo-mos' who introduce him to the pleasures of being slow: 'No one asks you for change or directions.' But when Alex returns home to find that Chloe wants him back, he wishes nothing more than to speed back up and leave this slow new world behind. Can Alex climb back up to speed? Will he win back Chloe? Will he ... Written by Anonymous

hip, funny, clever and deep
27 November 2004 | by (Hardwick, Vermont) – See all my reviews

This film is a perfect mixture of reality and fantasy. It's smart in its treatment of the life of an artist. I hope that this director gets a chance to make a longer version of this piece. It was very concise. There was not a word or visual wasted. No "fat", no filler. Raven Snook was sexy and sharp-witted. The lead actor had the same physical chops as any of the big stars like Jim Carrey and was, unlike Mr.

Carrey, actually likable and believable. Usually films about artist are whiney. This was addressed the problem then dealt with it. If the director gets a bigger budget, I hope that the big stars that are thrown at him by his producer don't muck up the clarity of the piece. The last thing that this film needs is a bunch of mugging and product placement. Raven Snook should be brought back. I can't

think of a bigger star that has her individuality. Maybe Melinda Clarke. The lead could easily be played by Kiernan Culkin.
