Kidnapping, Love, Guns, Booze, Videotape...Road Trip!! Gotta love it.
16 September 2004 | by (Portland, Oregon) – See all my reviews

Shooting Nick stands alone as an example of what independent film making should look and feel like. It quickly deals with the obvious issue of being shot on videotape and needs no explanation for it's jittery look. The story provides the context for the aesthetics. Genius.

The editing is fast paced and clever. The shot setups are unique and feel natural. The organic feel of the actors was what was most impressive. Yost has the style and ability to let the dialog and action flow within the stream of consciousness. This lent the credibility and reality that most indy films lack these days. Most try too hard to do what Yost made look easy.

The writing, if there was any, was simply amazing. The scenes were discussed before they were shot or they only had a predetermined outcome. That is a BOLD and brilliant move that worked perfectly. It is an unpredictable mix of a drama, action anda laugh-out-loud comedy.

The actors along with the locations were without a doubt Yost's greatest accomplishment. Robert Blanche's (Nick) brooding sense of humor and Sarah Rosenburg's (Tess) style, wit and grace combine for some intense on screen chemistry. The emotion and romance are gritty and potent. The intimate moments they share feel real and heart felt. Their spontaneity and respect for the moment is what real romance is all about. Life and love on the verge of insanity. The balance between what is right and what is wrong and never the twain shall meet.
