Clint Jordan ROCKS!!!, 8 May 2005
Author: SONNYK_USA from NYC

Although most low-budget indies rarely offer more than off-the-wall storytelling, every now and then a 'star' is born and this is one of those cases. Clint Jordan is on a hot streak (most recently appeared in the still undistributed "Down to the Bone") and after 15 years in the business may get the 'overnight' success he has earned.

As 'Rick', Jordan shows off a full range of emotion detailing the efforts of recently hospitalized mental patient to adjust back into society. The film opens with a 'welcome' party of sorts with Rick's friends and co-workers but the stress seems to be a bit too much. After obsessing about his tie he breaks up the party by proposing marriage to the love of his life ... his wife. When she doesn't accept a shouting match ensues and Rick takes to the streets alone.

Rick's journeys and the people he meets along the way expose the deepseated feelings many mentally ill people are forced to deal with everyday, including continual suicidal ideation. Where this film goes wrong (in the second half) is by splitting the attention of the audience between Rick and the unrealistic adventures of his wife and a younger man she meets at a party. These sections of the film are almost absurd in context and distract from Rick's very realistic struggles.

Maybe next time budding 'indie auteur' Joe Maggio will realize that one interesting character (as perfectly performed by Clint Jordan) is all the audience needs. As they say in film school - K*I*S*S (keep it simple ...), cause sometimes less is more, a lot more.
