Surprising find
22 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have seen this film several times and an always surprised at the complexity of a film made in such a simple fashion. In fact that tension, the complex held within the simple, is what makes OPEN HOUSE a truly remarkable achievement. That the film was obviously a labor of love - i.e. made for no money -- makes the outcome even more amazing. Jason Wiles shows a range unseen before by those of us who know him for his serialized television work. The real genius here, however, is Shem Bitterman, who has found the secret of making good work on a budget: keep the concept simple. By choosing to do what is clearly a well-written two character play in essentially one location, he shows the right road to quality. Filmmakers put away your motion graphics and whiz bang video gimmicks. Tell a story about two fascinating human beings living on the edge of self destruction and you have real movie making.
