Gameface delivers
11 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've never driven over 400 miles to see a film before. I'm glad that I did this past weekend.

My wife and I went to see Gameface at the Dances With Films film festival in West Hollywood.

I had no idea what to expect from the film and was moved by much of what I saw. The performances were great. You'd think the actors were pros who had worked together for years rather than a freshly cast group of newcomers, including one recruited from Craigslist (a gem I gleamed from the Q-n-A after the film).

I have to echo the thoughts of the first user to comment on this film - it deserves to be seen. I want to see it again.

While I'm not in the same place that the main character finds himself in, this movie made me care about his situation and also care about his search for a resolution. Along the way, we were treated to so many memorable scenes and lines. I've still got lines of dialogue going through my head. The interaction between the band members felt so real you'd think the movie was filmed around a real band.

On top of the excellent writing, direction, and editing, the audience is entertained with a terrific soundtrack.
