Rather interesting Film and Lead Actor
18 March 2005 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Went to see this movie at a special screening in LA and thought it was rather interesting. It has one of my favourite directors of all time making a special cameo in it as well, Oscar winner Istvan Szabo (Mephisto, Taking Sides, Sunshine, Being Julia and many other amazing movie's!). I was surprised to see him appear in a movie as he usually stays behind the camera- however once I saw the lead actor in this film (Ash Newman- Best Actor New York Film Festival 2004), I realised that Istvan must have just wanted to act alongside this young rising star. As I watched Ash Newman on screen, I had recollections of when I first saw River Phoenix in "My own private idaho". He actually looks like a very young Jude Law but has the attitude and charisma of River Phoenix. I look forward to seeing more of this young actor's work in years to come.
