Twisted, apocalyptic satire, THIS IS NOT A MOVIE envisions the end of the world through the bi-polar mind of a strung-out pop-culture addict. Starring Edward Furlong and Peter Coyote, with a jagged, atmospheric score from Slash.
In the Kentucky suburbs of Cincinnati, social misfit Jimmy Wright always has his video camera - at his psychiatrist's, spying on his parents in their bedroom, and watching high-school senior, Judy Oaks-Kellen. He rescues Judy from a teacher and students who tease and torment her, and showing her his video tape of revenge kick-starts their friendship, which is soon in an overdrive of romance, sex, and pleasure. Jimmy is in and out of mental institutions, and before long, he and Judy are on the run. Cocaine, guns, and a commune of other misfits figure in their flight. How far can their love take them? It's all on video. Written by
The film won Best Feature at the 2006 San Francisco Independent Film Festival. See more »

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?

The Ultimate Movie Review! - http://tss5078.blogspot.com - @tss5078
Since gaining popularity as a young John Connor in Terminator 2, Edward Furlong has done a whole string of B-movies. Jimmy & Judy is one of the lesser known direct-to-video films he's done and with good cause. From the cover this film looks like some modern version of Bonnie & Clyde and it's from the writers behind Natural Born Killers, so I was expecting good things. My hopes for a good film were immediately dashed when I found out that this low budget film was shot by the actors holding camcorders. I know some people love these types of films, but the constant movement just makes me sick. If that wasn't bad enough, as it turns out the story has basically no plot, as the story follows Jimmy's courtship of his parents friends daughter. The whole first half of the movie features a ton of sex and nudity and plays like a really high end porno, from there the story gets a little better, but not by much. It's your typical boy and girl falling in love in a matter of days and stick together no matter what happens. The performances are as sloppy as the actors amateur camera work, Eddie Furlong is one of my favorite actors, but he really had nothing in this film, it was lazy, sloppy, and just really didn't keep my interest. There's a funny scene here and there and most of us wouldn't say no to some gratuitous nudity, but this film just never came together as anything more than a bunch of shaky home movies pasted together, you really won't be missing anything by skipping this film.
