Documentary? Drama?, 5 April 2004
Author: jstu9

I saw this film at the Phoenix Film Festival but unfortunately I was watching another movie right before it and missed the first couple minutes of the movie, and also any comments the director made before it began.

So, I saw this movie as documentary. It was filmed like a documentary, it was shot like a documentary, and the people seemed completely real. Only afterwards during the Q & A did I realize that this was a drama, or maybe a mock documentary. It appears that the lead actors were... well actors playing a role. Though, of course, most of it was drawn from within. But there was an outline of a story beforehand.

This film was just interesting. I think about half way through the movie was when I realized how good this film was. The lead (Rick Gomez) did a great job.

In truth, I still don't know exactly was *real* and what wasn't. For example, I two leads (Rick and Jenny) did get married though I presume that the melodrama in the movie was not real. I think. I'm not even sure. Amy Redford (Robert's daughter) did a really good job as the "fixer" of other girl's boyfriends and hence, I assume all of that was story. But it was interesting because these actors would interact with non-actors while they were in character.

All in all, a very interesting film.
