Storyline

Newhall, California sits about thirty miles north of Los Angeles, not quite the middle of nowhere, but not exactly a real city either. It's somewhere in between. A place where the youth work at Video Depot, go to community college, struggle with jocks and townies, and all do their best to understand politics, their careers, their love life and self-image. It's here that Jordan, Molly, Tammy, and Lloyd are about to understand that in life you don't always get what you want. Sometimes you're stuck never leaving home, never fitting in, or never really knowing who your friends are. This is their transition toward growing up and realizing that real life doesn't always end up like a movie. Written by Mike Ott

Anchored by a tremendous leading performance, Analog Days soars!
2 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I walked into Analog Days not knowing quite what to expect. Its trailer displayed it as an update of sorts of Eric Bogosian's SuBurbia, featuring a group of young, small town twentysomethings struggling to find their place in the world. Not exactly summer blockbuster material, I should say.

Having seen it, I am happy to report that this film provides welcome relief from the mindless summertime drivel that true cinema lovers have been suffering through as of late. This is the kind of intimate character study that will likely win many admirers in the festival circuit and develop a cult following. The film is anchored by a wonderful and (hopefully) star-making performance from Ivy Khan. As Tammy, a shy film student, Khan breaks your heart with her nuanced, understated acting. Every reaction, every gesture is filled with insight into Tammy's inner world. Khan's performance contains a depth that is not often found from an actress of her age. It's always great to discover a talented newcomer, and Khan is sure to go on to bigger, more high-profile roles. She is truly a master of her craft.

Another winning performance comes from Ryan Johnsen as Fenster, who provides much of the film's comic relief. Like Khan, Johnsen avoids one-dimensional clichés in his work; opting instead to paint his portrait in tiny brush strokes.

This film succeeds because it refuses to give into conventional popcorn movie devices. Tammy's angst isn't easily solved by some third act solution. This is because writer/director Mike Ott understands that LIFE ITSELF isn't divided into scenes and acts. Instead, he offers a wonderful finale which offers the audience to draw their own conclusions. Let the record show that THIS audience member appreciates Mr. Ott's willingness to trust his viewers as intelligent filmgoers.
