Surprisingly Good Movie
23 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was asked to attend "The 27 Club" at the Tribeca Movie Festival by a friend who was interested in the movie. Honestly, I was not overly excited about what I thought would be another drug-focused rock and roll movie.

I was pleasantly surprised to find myself tied to the characters who were slowly developed through the movie. By the end, I truly was hoping that Eliot would find his purpose in life. I thought Joe Anderson did an amazing job with the character of Eliot.

David Emrich also played the character of "Three Words" very well. The novel concept of only speaking in three words was never annoying as you might think it would be...it was actually intriguing to see how things would be answered in only three words. I did think that Eliot would eventually ask for his real name...but perhaps that would have ruined calling him Three Words.

All in all, this was a very enjoyable movie with some young and talented actors.
