Quotes

Amber: So, are we gonna talk about it?
Mason: What? No, I just can't figure out what color to use for the shadow of your arm.
Amber: So, we're not gonna talk about it. Okay... So, why didn't you use the blue?
Mason: Because it'll pull focus from your eyes.
Amber: What about the orange?
Mason: Too close to the tan in your slip.
Amber: Does it matter?
Mason: Yes. It's all about contrast. To accentuate some parts, you have to hide others.
Amber: So they can't be noticed?
Mason: So they won't... draw attention.

Excellent film. A must see for indie film fans.
12 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Amber" is probably my favorite character that Miss Amber Tamblyn has played thus far, that being said, Spiral is probably my favorite film that Amber has done so far. Same goes for Joel Moore as Mason. Very well written, creatively filmed/produced, great performances by everyone involved. I love getting attached to characters in a movie, which is something that the actors bring to this one. They all kind of grew on me. That's a rarity in the film industry today, but this cast really did an amazing job. There's a few other actors that could have maybe played the parts well, but with anyone else the performance and believability in the movie would have been a little on the blah side. This is some Incredible work, kudos to everyone involved. If you're an indie film fan with an open mind, which most of us have, you will love Spiral.
