HOME SWEET HOME
mcjquebec from Los Angeles
31 October 2004
This little jewel of a low budget film pushed my buttons like no other.
The discomfort that I experienced watching it was very real. This trip
back to suburbia made me feel claustrophobic
which explains why I
completely identified with Jack Kerrigan's character, Theo, a writer
who now lives in Los Angeles but goes back home to middle America when
his father has a gun accident.
The minute he gets there, Theo remembers why he left
his is a
dysfunctional family at its best! Probably just like any other
A little Crazy quickly reminds us of the characters in our lives such
as the depressed father, the New-Age mother, the motivational speaker
brother and the loser sister. Theo's family conflicts bring him down
and he quickly finds himself in a life-crisis. Home Sweet Home indeed!
A little Crazy is a perfect example of what a talented director can
accomplish when shooting on a micro-budget... no money but lots of
candy! Jordan Ellis surrounded himself with an impressive cast and
really knew how to direct the actors in his original screenplay. They
were very colorful but never over the top.
I look forward to Jordan Ellis' future projects. His is the work of a
talented director who speaks from the heart. You can always buy
production value, but you can't buy talent
I am very curious to see
what Ellis will accomplish with a real budge! Should be interesting
