Not so good - ruined by overbearing star/director
17 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What does happen when an interesting story is ruined by a man who just cannot keep out of the shadows and must (simply MUST) always leap centre stage? Well it looks a bit like Girl 27.

I think I am kinder than some other reviewers who give this film a one (but maybe not than those who think this is the best film of all time --- maybe the director or his friends eh?) this isn't terrible really, just fairly bad. The story, however, saves it from being awful - it is quite compelling blend of misogyny and studio politics with a victim who is left a ruin.

Its his first film I think so maybe he will learn to focus more on the subject of a documentary and not to grab the attention so much for the next effort.
