An New Original Voice
30 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw the Still Life at the Cackalaky Film Festival an I must say that I was thoroughly impressed. The performances were powerful, authentic an organic. The story engaging. The look unique and the best: the sound track kick ass! I mean com'on! You will not find Indies today with music from Delaney Bramlett, Doug Carrion, Dean Dinning, Peter Finestone, Eddie Hedges, Sonny Mone, Matthew Nelson, Louise Post, Dizzy Reed, Darius Rucker, Dave "The Snake" Sabo & Adrian Young!!! But then, I heard the filmmaker (Joel Miller) speak and it all made sense. He used to be a roadie for these guys and asked them all to participate in the film. It was like going to a concert. Amazing! I also really enjoyed the plot. A great concept. There is great philosophy in it. Art is great only once you destroy it.

I highly recommend this film and look forward to the next one from Mr. Miller.

Thank God he didn't think he had to destroy this film to make it great so we can all enjoy it! A+
