unmoving movie
11 March 2004 | by (Vancouver, Canada) – See all my reviews

Once again welcome to the self-indulgent world of wannabe writers who also think they can direct and act. I'm sure you'd agree there are only so many Orson Welles in this world and the writer, director, lead of this pic is not one of them.

Why would anyone want to watch a movie that is so full of nothing? How I made it to the end I'll never know...I guess we were hoping there would be some sort of last-minute twist to redeem it. That did not happen. There are some fairly good actors in this movie, but they weren't given roles that would have allowed them to shine. Of course John Neville is an institution in stage and film acting, but his part in this movie was strange and wierdly inconsistent. One minute he was a weak old, sweet senior...the next a snarling bastard. What's up with that? Jay Moreau is hard-working and does a lot of film work, but in this movie he never gets anything more than a two-dimensional character who alternately is sweet like Neville and then loud and idiotic...

I got the impression that the writer thinks he is Ben Stiller...would that he were!!! He writes his lead character as a loser...who can't grow up, someone who is masturbating in one scene (not very convincingly), paintballing (and not very well at that) in another, and destroying his supposedly X-rated homevideos in another. We aren't given a sense that he has any talent. He can't keep a girlfriend or hold a job. He doesn't even seem capable of packing boxes or taping them up for shipping. Someone should explain to the editor and the director that it isn't necessary to yap all the way through a film....you really can pause and show your characters doing things....it's called MONTAGE. By the way, the marriage ceremony that fails has been used in so many movies it no longer shocks anyone. The lead female has as much charisma as a clam. She plays the role as a flake...in most scenes she's not even very pretty so why in the heck would this geeky loser writer be so smitten with her? The audience sure won't like her.

My guess is that this a student film, one that's designed to lead to bigger and better things, preferably spending other people's money to get there. Let's hope the persons responsible for this going nowhere flic get some real life experience and learn that a movie needs to say something important and fresh, something that people will walk away from and say, "Wow that was great---what a movie". Let somebody critique the rough cut before you subject audiences to your film.
