...Rolling Face...
30 June 2009 | by (Miami Beach, Florida) – See all my reviews

As you can probably deduct from the film's title, 'Rolling' is much ado about Ecstasy. The advertising for the film caught my eye at Ultra Music Festival in Miami in 2008 by handing out flyer's for the film with a small button bag with a piece of candy inside that closely resembled a hit of E. After taking it's sweet time to actually make it to DVD, I finally received my copy in the mail from Amazon and knew immediately I had to share a review with all of you.

The film is a mock or faux-documentary and although this is an overused tactic in cinema, 'Rolling' seems to execute it's premise nicely. Several people, each from their own unique walk, prepare themselves for a night of drug induced euphoria at a warehouse party. As we follow each character with interviews, the story develops on cue with the theme of each ongoing interview. Nice character development is the result and I'm sure that those that have ever existed within the world of Ecstasy will feel like they know or know someone like each and every character.

The film is obviously Pro-Ecstasy, with a general but strong warning message... Almost like a public service announcement created by E-Tards. Accompanied by the music sty-lings of Simply Jeff, a popular breaks DJ from Los Angeles, 'Rolling's' soundtrack is mostly full of beautiful beats... however, they're were a few moments when the music got a bit 'trancey' or 'hypnotic' and actually sucked me right into the film. At one point I even got nervous and felt like I was doing something wrong... Really, I mean it got intense.

As beautiful of a picture that I have created for this movie so far I have to say that it is not all candy and fuzzy bunnies. As a matter of fact, the movie begins to drag once we hit the after party and the script is sometimes weak and overacted. Still, there is no doubt in my mind that some of you, especially those who are or have been ravers, will enjoy this movie. In comparison to 'Groove', I dig 'Rolling' much, much more... So yeah, it's worth checking out... but don't expect a masterpiece... After all, they are all rolling for Christ's sake!

Here is why we deem it at a slightly above average 6.5/10: +2 for accurate depiction of the world of Ecstasy +2 for the most genuine performance from all actors of the 'Rolling Face' +1 for the clever structure +1 for not overshadowing it's message +.5 for featuring breaks legend Simply Jeff
