Morality Play
10 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is very special. Hinged to a single moment in time, it cleverly layers a variety of crimes and violent acts that Americans are growing numb to, then turns them on their head with a dose of innocent wisdom delivered by a most unlikely messenger. Turn on a news show in America and you're sure to get stories like these... Misunderstood teens and gang bangers using guns with no remorse. Elected officials debating torture laws. The motives of terrorists. There are times you'll even get a report concerning the homeless. "The Power of Few" presents an anthology of 5 short stories, that the viewer slowly discovers are taking place at the exact same time, all within a close radius in New Orleans. This film is honest about a new American culture. It's characters are raw and true and the film sugar coats nothing. The dialogue is at times absurd, but all you need to do is spend 5 minutes with a homeless man or a loving couple to find out how absurd a real conversation can really get. It uses some conventions made famous by films like Run Lola Run, Pulp Fiction, Magnolia and other non-linear/multi-perspective films. But what separates this film from all it's predecessors is that it is essentially a morality play. It's one of those films you will either love or hate, but can't deny it's truth. From all the reviews I've read, it doesn't seem like there's a clear consensus among it's viewers. When you mix so many different character types and remain true to them, you are going to get an odd mix of tone. And that may be the films only flaw, is that in staying true to each character's essence, the film seems to shift tone in an abrupt way. But that is why this is an original film and not a copy of anything I've ever viewed. If the director kept the tone consistent throughout, it might be a more steady film, but it would not be truth. Kudos to everyone involved in this gem.
