Storyline

Renowned science-fiction author Charlie Thomas writes peacefully in his wooded, upstate home. But when his Agent Trevor arrives uninvited at Charlie's home, the writer is flustered and infuriated with his agent, forcing Charlie to build a structure of total isolation. Charlie's new home is an astounding confine of modern architecture, completely devoid of electricity, furniture, or any phone line. And more shocking yet, Charlie's new home is an exact replica of a house that Charlie once developed in a story. When Trevor returns to the secluded estate, the eerie and confusing display of fiction come-to-life stuns the agent immensely; but it has driven Charlie to utter serenity. What happens inside Charlie's new home, however, is somewhat fantastic and totally insane. Written by Jeremy Pollack

Do Not Give Cameras to Little Rich Boys
19 August 2008 | by See all my reviews

I just saw this at a friend's screening of the no-name indie stuff she's collected over the years. This is akin to another disaster at that screening called "Metamorphosis" (believe me, the writer never read the Kafka). In any case, it is the sum total of a rich kid with a lot of money and a camera. It's a hobby. An experiment. This is not serious film-making. It's just a proof of concept reel. The story came from, if I'm right, and I may not be...the guy's brother? Come on. The film stock cost more than the cash it would have taken to option some poor guy's GOOD short story. Anyway, what a wreck.

Go buy a winery with your trust fund and leave the industry alone. There is no heart here.
