Saw YouthAnAsia at its world premiere at the good old Parkway. The movie was about some young friends and how their lives changed in one pivotal moment. The acting, particularly that of star Justin Zachary, was phenomenal. The writing was good but I don't know why the story was told in so determinedly asynchronous a fashion. I wish I had thought to ask the writer that when he was standing right next to me. I can't speak to the cinematography, because it was transferred from Super-8 to DVD and projected from that for the showing, so it looked more or less like mud.
On the way out I ran into Justin Zachary and said, "You were so great." He high-fived me! "Is this your first film?" he said it was. I said, "Kid, you're going places." He played someone who was seventeen to nineteen in the movie, so he seemed like a kid to me.
He said, "Thankee, Baby," which made him a lot older and me a lot younger. That was fun. I hope he makes it. He's very talented, as well as smooth.
Sorry I don't have much to say about the movie because I don't know how to avoid spoilers very well. Just catch Justin Zachary on his way up, that's my advice.
