Typical young writer fare
14 March 2003 | by (Belgrade, Serbia) – See all my reviews

SLEPA PEGA is a typical young writer fare. It is pretty weak in terms of craft and it persists on aggresive use of inside knowledge and attempts at tackling serious social issues like drugs and AIDS. It is always nice to see such fresh and energetic approach. This is why I guess SLEPA PEGA can play quite well with older demographics since they are supposed to have no clue about youngsters and drugs. Also the energy ought to be enough to seduce the elders. However, when it comes to middle-aged, Gen-X types, this film plays flat. The drug addiction is overly dramatized and coming down from heroin doesn`t look so horrible. This whole drying out routine seems to be lifted from Frankenheimer`s FRENCH CONNECTION 2.

The direction is trying to be fancy and arty. Camera moves are overdone because during course of time, author probably realized that she can`t rely on conservative storytelling techniques. Even though, this style is too complicated and it misguides the audience because there are simply too many accents.

In common film cultures, such juvenile projects never get greenlighted. But still, Slak may have a few surprises up her sleeve in her sophomore efforts.
