14 October 2004 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

In this 2003 student-like film, you'll see the name Mraovich throughout. I guess it's all in the family, eh? Holly Mraovich in a small role, Chris Mraovich and Robert Mraovich writing original music. Sam Mraovich stars, directs, writes (script and music), does the casting as well as the cinematography and editing along with Chris Mraovich. Wow, Sam, you did take on a lot of responsibility. You must have felt this was something that needed to be seen. I do congratulate you on your efforts. Their aren't enough young people venturing into making original films these day.

First of all, get a good story. Do some more research in choosing your selections. If you write your own, get more than one opinion before filming. As an actor, I felt you could have done better. If you're going to go naked, go naked. I felt there was much uncomfortable posing on your part. Too bad that your co-star, Jamie Brett Gabel, wasn't naked. For he was something to look at. Nudity can be exciting when photographed well. It wasn't in this flick. Even in your first kissing scene, you seemed stiff and awkward in the delivery. What a natural thing to kiss a beautiful guy like Jamie. I say go for it. I've done some kissing scenes with another guy and enjoyed the closeness of them.

Most of the rest of the cast were bad actors. Not getting good direction for one thing and not able to pull it off for another. As a casting director, you could have done better. But listen, it was your first film, right? You learn from everything you do. Take this lesson and move on to better scripts, less performing and more solid direction. Good luck!
