In the city of Los Angeles, millions of lives intersect everyday, but each individual is still isolated from the whole. A number of strange incidents occur to four men and four women, just as their own lives begin to spiral out of control. Surrounded by con artists, frauds, drug addicts, and homeless people, a story starts to form in a screenwriter's head. Little does he know, his characters seem to have come to life as well. Things takes a surprise turn, as these LA residents find themselves locked into a mystery together. While relating to quantum mechanics, our own spiral galaxy, and the struggle of human existence, an urban love story grows out of the vine of disconnection. Written by Bloodshot Pictures

Film School undergraduate work
10 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Have you ever wondered what a David Lynch film would look like if Lynch had no talent? This is your answer. The commentary tract with Ramzi Abed and friends is quite instructive. The film looks like a student film project, and Ramzi and friends sound like unformed adults still searching for clues. The dialogue is atrocious. An aspiring writer would only fight to have his or her name removed from the credits on this film. No one who worked on the film including Ramzi Abed has any idea what the film is about. They admit this.

While Ramzi has not yet demonstrated any talent for making a compelling or even competent film he has proved that he knows how to convince people with money that he can as this is not his first film. That or he has a lot of money himself that he inherited.

Perhaps someday Ramzi will make a film good enough that he can graduate from film school and then go on to make a film worthy of our time. Regardless of whether he ever develops any ability he will continue to make films because he is a proved talent at finding money to make films.

Perhaps he should be a producer instead?
