An interesting concept., 16 July 2010
Author: lewiskendell from United States

"My life's like that accident. You're just slowing down to look."

Not bad, not bad at all. Fix is a faux-documentary about a man and his girlfriend's attempt to get his charismatic, junkie brother to rehab by a court-ordered time. It takes place during the course of a single day in and around Los Angeles, and it's shot from the perspective of a hand-held camera that they're using to document the (supposedly simple) trip. Getting Leo to his destination turns out to be a lot more complicated than expected (of course), and we come along with them on the journey. 

I'll admit that I only watched it because Olivia Wilde was one of the main actors, but it ended up being a pleasant surprise. Visually, Fix is very interesting. The three main characters travel all through Los Angeles, and meet the requisite colorful and interesting characters. The story goes in a lot of different directions, from humor to social awareness to the typical road trip narrative. 

At times, it's not hard to see this as a real documentary with actual people. There's good chemistry between the actors (understandable, given their connections in real life), and that makes the entire movie easier to buy into.  Fix can be a little preachy and unfocused at times, but that makes sense when you consider that these characters probably would say things that they do to each other.

That's not to say that Fix doesn't veer into implausibility, from time to time. There are a few scenes that come off as incredibly inauthentic, and one at the end that was just too ridiculous and over-the-top. Eccentricity is fine, but it can hurt a movie when it's forced.

As far as small, independent, low-budget movies go, I've seen a lot worse. I'd recommend this to anyone who has an affinity for that kind of film. If you prefer the gloss and tidy bookends of a more typical movie, you might want to skip Fix.
