I watched Spudmonkey at a film festival in Toronto, and it was great. The whole audience really got into it, and there were heaps of laughs. The acting was good, there was some really funny dialogue, and the music was cool.
I thought the story was really good too. Yeah, we've seen "buddy movies" before, but this was nothing like "Lethal Weapon". The dialogue was more natural... the characters of Alex and Jeff were just a couple of blokes you'd like to have around for a barbecue.
The other thing which really struck me was the look of the film. The director did a Q & A after the screening and said they made the whole thing for like $50,000. That's a quarter of the budget of the average 30second Coke commercial! Still, I guess El Mariachi was made for $7,000 so I suppose anything's possible!
I hope it comes out on DVD or something coz I'd like to see it again.
