You always take a chance when you go to an unrated indie film. There's no one to ask if the film is epic, enigmatic, or just an utter waste of time. I love taking that risk and I usually end up with something to think and talk about even if it wasn't award-worthy.
Disquiet was the first movie I've seen at a film festival that fell into the "utter waste of time" category.
The movie was a waste of actors' talent (and I think there was some talent there), director's effort, writer's ink, and viewers' faith - faith that at the end of almost any movie there is some reward for time spent.
For me, it's like that time disappeared into a black hole. I've got nothing to show for it. It didn't have driving themes and motifs, complexity or controversy. The whole thing seems to sit on the fact that this character doesn't understand people or like himself so he does detestable things. That isn't a plot. It's barely a premise.
I don't call a movie interesting or controversial just because of nudity, sex, and masturbation. There's plenty of free porn on the internet if thats all I wanted. I was hoping for something to think about. Better luck next time.
