Storyline

THE DRY SPELL is an offbeat comedy depicting the deterioration of mental health in the absence of sex. With its unique style, THE DRY SPELL provides a penetrating look into the disturbed psyche of a man alone. The story chronicles the comic missteps of the irreverent Josey Fargo as he desperately seeks a new mate. It's been nearly two years since this dry spell began, and the urgency to find new love is boiling over. Josey's self-confidence is at an all-time low. Having very little to offer, Josey must try harder than other men. And try he does. THE DRY SPELL is a multi-layered comedy that fearlessly delves into some thorny issues, such as the fragility of self-confidence and the fear of growing old alone. Written by Anon

Hilarious
26 January 2005 | by (Brooklyn, NY) – See all my reviews

I just recently saw this movie at the Slamdance film festival in Park City, UT this past weekend and it was absolutely hilarious. The lead actor, Chip, had me bent over in my lap from laughing so hard. The experiences that he goes through in the movie are ones that both men and women can relate to. The script and camera techniques are very unique and contribute to the whole experience. I had never heard of John Dowdle before, but he did a great job with this one and obviously has some serious talent. Hopefully this film will be distributed so that everyone will have the opportunity to see this one. Definitely worth while.
