Just saw this at my college in Western Washington. First off I should point out that we usually have pretty lame guests, so having a real filmmaker bring a real film was quite the treat. So writer/director Jordan Albertsen was our guest, and sneak previewed an "almost finished" version of his film "The Standard". All I can say is wow. It left me speechless. It's defiantly best to go into this movie not knowing much about it. It's an extremely powerful film, and quite the debut for Mr. Albertsen (who was only 22 when he shot it!). The trailer would lead you to believe that it's a regular "coming of age" type film, but if anything it rips apart those clichés. I really don't want to go into any spoilers, but I will say that this is a movie that not everyone is going to like, but is a film everyone should see. It will defiantly spark controversy, and discussion (believe me, people are still talking about it). Everyone really seemed blown away by the film. Jordan Albertsen has made a film unlike any other I can think of, and it's very bold. I can't wait to see it again, and look forward to seeing what else Jordan has to offer the world of film.
