Storyline

Andrew Gillis' debut feature, simulating a documentary film with its use of handheld cameras, was awarded an official certificate for following Dogme 95's rules for "cinematic chastity." Following college, Karen relocates to Security, Colorado, to be close to boyfriend Paul. With an apartment and a job in a record store, her life is in order, so she then embarks on her dream of becoming a writer. However, her job is unfulfilling, and when she spots a theft in the store, she doesn't report the shoplifter but instead attempts to befriend her. Unable to relate to life around her, Karen has a growing dissatisfaction with her existence, and an unusual psychological portrait emerges as she attempts to deal with everyday realities and find security in Security.

Yep--that's Security, Colorado all right. Boring as hell.
9 February 2006 | by (Bothell, Washington, Land of Rain) – See all my reviews

Karen Felber is gorgeous and should do more films. That's the positive.

On the negative side, this flick is otherwise boring as hell. Not even enough interest in what's depicted to rise to the level of depressing. It's really more of a "project" than a movie.

But I used to work in the real Security, Colorado; in fact that's why I taped this flick off of Sundance Channel in the first place. I must say, however, that if there ever was a movie that summed the place up, it's this one. Security, an unincorporated "community" just south of Colorado Springs, was boring, bordering on depressing. It was so much nothing that it's difficult to describe. This film succeeds in that, not with detail about the place itself, but through communicating a mood. A boring mood. But there was at least one hot chick living in Security. So, Boring + One Cute Chick out of Thousands= Security, Colorado--the movie and the place.

In that sense the film is a success.
