"Home" is where the Party is!!!
26 October 2005 | by (San Antonio, TX) – See all my reviews

I am not someone who gets all that turned on by most small indie films

  • either they work for me or they don't. "Home" worked - it worked the


party, even!!!

Two comparisons to other filmmaker's work I can make are A) Altman and 2) Scorsese; the former due mostly to a seemingly effortless tapestry weave and the latter due to a wonderful, ongoing music meld.

It's rare that I see an indie film that feels fresh, and I'm certain that I've never seen a party portrayed as effectively and true as in "Home".

It begins small, with 4 or 5 people, and methodically grows, all the while following the main character Bobby's perceptions & observations. From time to time new people simply "appear" at the party. They aren't always introduced and it doesn't matter. That's the way parties operate and writer/director Seitz nails it. Sometimes things get ugly, sometimes things are sweet. Think Blake Edwards' "The Party", only contemporary and minus the slapstick.

The cast is exceptional across the board, but I gotta give high props indeed to Jason Liebrecht, who reminds me of Tarantino (his suit may be a factor), if only Tarantino were younger and could act. This guy really should go places. He was absolutely worth following around for 90 minutes. Erin Visslailli was the other standout; she's got this wonderful sense of strength that comes through in the subtlest of ways. I could line-list what I like about each actor, but suffice it to say they made a wonderful ensemble of believable people and there isn't any one person I didn't buy.

What's also admirable - from a behind-the-scenes standpoint - is that "Home" is written and directed by a film critic, Matt Zoller Seitz. When a critic steps up to the plate to put their money where their keyboard is, I consider it a hugely brave move. Few have the tenacity to do it; Rod Lurie and Bill Carter are a couple off the top of my head and I'd really like to see others who earn a living from the medium attempt the same.

This film really needs a nice DVD release or a shot at playing on The Sundance Channel or IFC. Highly recommended and best viewed with a bottle or two of fine wine, perhaps even in an intimate party setting of your own design.
