Jimmy, we discussed this, you can't tape our sessions, it's not allowed. Does your defiance make you feel more powerful? Filming people makes you feel like you're in control of the situation, doesn't it? Maybe?

Jimmy and Judy is a shared journey exploring the love, idealism and romance of youth set against the forces of mental instability and aggression. The self-filming style added greatly to the drama and immediacy. I was constantly wondering if I would get to keep seeing what was coming next. Sometimes I could see where it was heading, other times I was surprised, even shocked by the turns of events.
Great dramatic tension, wonderful acting and complex, believable characters. The actors were well cast for their parts. I was totally immersed in their performances.
This film is superb. I highly recommend it.
