Storyline

Welcome to the crossroads... Wasteland is a mosaic of American college life seen through those that live it. Each of these characters, twenty-something, confused, insecure, and faceless they share the fate of an uncertain future. They are a cross-section of their generation, children of indifference manipulated by society to drive toward success, obsessed with self-image; they all search for acceptance and most importantly...love. Christina enters an empty office, waiting alone as time passes. She has been called to a meeting with a special counselor for an unspecified college to discuss the loss of a student at the hands of suicide. So begins the story of the four months prior, which concludes in tragedy. The story follows Vincent and his quest for answers. He goes to a campus preacher known only as The Poet and asks of him... "What do you know about love Poet?" Vincent begins to tell his story, his own version of these months, and we meet our characters; lives interwoven in a cycle ...

An attempt at teen angst falls flat
3 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie was made by some Rutgers college students as a first attempt at making a motion picture. And as they say practice makes perfect, so perhaps these aspiring filmmakers have something hidden up their sleeves in the near future, but as for now its yet to be seen. The movie moves as slow as molasses, it has nothing to draw you in, no intrigue, no real plot, no quick one liners, nada. You can see the director trying to add an artistic touch with the use of color, but again it feels false with a push of dramatic colors that has no real place in this dead story. It was a torturous 2 hrs, I would not recommend it to anyone.
