RULE OF THREE shows that story and character still exist in film
10 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Perhaps it's due to its low budget that RULE OF THREE is allowed to take its time and concentrate on its characters. The three interconnected stories and the individuals who embody those stories have been given the necessary room to breath so often missing from films with 500 times the budget.

ROL is engaging and engrossing. Eric Shapiro's direction is subtle with an understanding of both composition and performance. The script by Rhoda Jordan is surprisingly well-written and insightful (surprising only because many films in this budget range often have scripts that feel a bit amateurish. ROL never does). And Rhoda Jordan's performance as Lo is both sexy and real. It's nice to see a talented actress who also has the power, talent and fearlessness to write a role for herself and fill it so nicely. Especially in a town where so many actors wait for permission to do what they love. And by that same token, the same should be said of producer/director Shapiro, who put together such a strong film to showcase his talents.

I look forward to the next film from this writing, producing, directing, and acting team. Both the film and the filmmakers are an inspiration.
