One of the worst movies of recent.
1 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

This barely meets the standard for a film, but since it technically contains all the minimal requirements for a movie, I'll concede that it's a movie. But that's the most recognition it'll get from me.

Besides from - technically - being a film, it doesn't meet any standards that I have whatsoever. Every element that's required in a film - in this film - was terrible to depressing. What was depressing was the scale of terrible it reached. I repeat, every facet.

The director's understanding of cinematography is a very stable one. Stable in the sense the camera didn't movie. It certainly had the indie style of non-movement. You know, where the camera is focused on one area, despite the fact different things are happening. To be fair, throughout most of the movie they didn't move much, so at least you could see what was going on in the shot, for the most part.

The soundtrack was literally one song. Actually, the sound track was literally a 10 second piano verse, does that even constitute a song?

The acting was horrible. I mean it. Every actor needs serious lessons on how to act. Bland, monotone, unenthusiastic and without nuances of tone and expressions. Delivery of jokes or expressions came off as forced and non-human.

Production and editing, crappy. Nothing appealing or interesting to it. Just fade out and fade ins were the most common.

The worst thing is that all this together equals a painful dose of depression. You can't sit through this film without getting down at how awful and completely disinteresting it is. So bad it's good? No, so bad it's depression.
