Excellent insights into elderly care and its lonely world.
9 August 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have been a big fan of Garland Yee's work for many years now and to see his ideas and subtle themes come to the screen was something that has been long over due.

The simple story of a bingo game was used as a canvas to paint subtler themes and true emotional states of our seniors. While the main character seems, at moments, like he is frustrated with dealing with these confused and confusing old people, we can also see much deeper and see how much more frustrated the seniors are.

It really is a shame how we put our family members away in these homes, and then just leave them there. "Out of sight, and out of mind" Games likes bingo are probably the highlights of their days. How sad is that. I think anyone who is reading this and has family in a nursing home should go see them soon.

Back to the film, it was one of the best short films I have seen in awhile. Through it's documentary style approach it offered a very real slice of nursing home life.

I have heard that there are plans to make a feature and all I can say is that I am sure it would be a refreshing film when compared to all the soulless and mindless films that are being churned out today. It is not about selling a product, it is not a product, it is has something to offer and nothing to sell.

I just hope that someday I can work with Garland Yee and collaborate on some movie ideas. He has always had insight into the pop culture vien that is movies. However, as soothsayer of new trends, he also sees beyond the triviality of pop culture and really has something to say. He is a poet and scholar of all things filmic.

It is about time for things to change. We are on the brink of a boring cultural plateau, both in music and film, and it is time we look to people like Garland Yee for guidance back into a more meaningful world.
