Big naive kid misunderstood, 12 July 2005
Author: from United States

I just saw the the world premiere of "Say Uncle" last night at LA's Outfest. Peter Paige, Kathy Najimy, and other cast members were there. A couple of QAF cast were also present to support Peter, including Scott Lowell and Robert Gant.

The response by the audience seemed very positive. The movie was well done. Paige demonstrates his chops not only as an actor, but as a writer/director. "Say Uncle" is a smart movie that explores the idea of alienation on a number of levels in our society. Paige effectively blends humor with the contemplation of serious issues (as exhibited by both laughter and tears of the audience).

Paige's character (Paul) functions with the naive perceptions of a child among adults. Najimy's character shows her own naivity when she forms different assumptions about Paul during the course of the movie and subsequently targets him. Najimy portrays an sympathetic antagonist. It was easy to laugh at her character, become disgusted, and yet feel sorry for her, because she embodied what we often see in society.

This is one of those movies that had me thinking about it long after I left the theater. I found myself contemplating my own thoughts and feelings regarding the issues presented and societal expectations. I do hope that Paige is able to find a distributor for this film so that it may be seen and recognized by a larger audience.
