An Eccentric Comedy from the Brothers Nee, 19 March 2006
Author: zaphods_secondhead from United States

Every year hundreds, if not thousands, of small, privately funded independent films fall through the massive and gaping cracks of Hollywood and get little notice. Pray to whatever god you may worship this is not one.

The movie is a must see, no doubt about that, but the movie is especially relevant for any struggling artists out there. The main character, a poet named Calvin Wizzig, seems to embody every frustrated artist that knows he could be something if the world would just give him a chance. And he does everything in his power to get his chance too.

While on the path the being published (or at least he hopes) he goes on an almost Homer like journey. Encountering one memorable and funny character after the next. One of the most impressive things about the film was its ability to cut off the fat most movies carry. Every line is important to the characters or plot, not a word is wasted. This should be attributed to the extraordinary writing and directing coming from Adam and Aaron Nee.

If you are tired of the same old crap Hollywood is producing ever year, and want a refreshing, intelligent, funny, touching, and memorable film then see "The Last Romantic"

The brothers Nee have produced a film that, if given a distribution deal, will surely become a cult favorite if not an overall financial success.

I am sorry this review was not better written.
