POLITICAL Genius!!!
2 July 2006 | by (Transylvannia) – See all my reviews

Oh my god! i am speechless over the myriad of motifs regarding modern American culture. This work of cinematic magnificence can only be described with one word: different. I really felt like I was there at the prom scene. That was some great film-making and acting. The superficial attraction between Justin and Bobby made me sob, my heart was wrenching! This movie gave me faith in student productions. The stunning raw beauty of Joanne made my eyes water with admiration. My only word of advice for this movie to improve is to have made it longer! I couldn't get enough of the comedy that soaked this juicy documentary of love, hate, and conformity. Bravo Different.
