An incendiary affair.
25 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had yet to see a film that had such an enormously affecting plot and characters before I had seen Dreamkiller. I walked into the theater not expecting much unfortunately, with the way films are made now-a-days, the Hollywood machine pumping out remakes and adaptations, and shying away from films such as Dreamkiller because of fear they will lose money. Missing out on true creative genius, and such subtlety in performances. Let me make this clear, I have never written a review before, I have seen too many films to count but haven't seen anything in recent years worth writing about. Since this film is struggling to get an audience, and simply because I know that it's worth the time to write a review, I am here to let you know that you need to see this film, it is enthralling, wonderfully acted, magnificently directed by a devoted young female director, whom I had the pleasure to meet at the q&a after the film. It deserves attention, and I hope that everyone has a chance to see it.
