well-intentioned but leaden social drama
12 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Rolling" is a low-budget independent film focused on a handful of young Angelenos who have all had experience with the drug Ecstasy. Done in the style of a you-are-there docudrama, the movie alternates between traditional dramatic sequences and staged interviews with the characters who speak directly to the camera about the drug and the effect it's had on their lives. (The term "rolling" refers to the high one gets when tripping on the drug).

The movie certainly means well, and there are definitely some lessons to be learned from the characters' experiences. And, in all fairness, director/co-writer Billy Samoa Saleebey is to be congratulated for not engaging in quite as much melodramatic finger-wagging as the material might have warranted. But the amateurishness of the execution - the jittery, hand-held camera, the time-lapse psychedelics, the unconvincing performances, the lackluster writing - robs the movie of much of its impact. Somehow, when all the characters do is party and talk about partying, there isn't much room for them to grow and develop into compelling and engaging figures. The result is that we become detached observers rather than fully engaged participants in the scene

  • and that, given the urgency of the subject matter, is simply


unacceptable.
