BACK TO GOOD OLD FEEL GOOD'S
18 August 2003 | by (Las Vegas, Nevada) – See all my reviews

Well, someone finally decided to make a 'realistic' film again in the independent/short world. It seems to me that ever since Pulp Fiction's success in the late nineties, everyone with no budget and a camera have been aiming for the shocking, obscure or plain-right left of center because it's a mindless way to get attention. I am a huge fan, (or at least was) of short and independent films until everything being made focused on some form of abuse, sexual confusion or drug related issues. In A Sight For Sore Eyes, I am happy to say they have done none of that. It's a back-to-the-basics love story of two people that come together from worlds apart. I don't want to give too much away, but there are some beautiful angles that were taken with this picture that kept you interested all the way through. I hope to find more simple films like this coming down the pike, cause sometimes they really touch your heart. BRAVO!
