1st watched 1/30/2012 5 out of 10(Dir-David Zellner): Sad, heartbreaking and sometimes funny depiction of a broken man from a divorce who tries to bring back his lost companion, a cat named Goliath, as his last piece of his life that was still there to possibly get back. This independent film was made by the Zellner brothers, who were supposedly famous for their shorts at the Sundance festival, and this was their first feature film. The movie has it's positive moments with it's tongue-in-cheek humor and the realistic portrayal of a loner(who didn't choose to be alone) which unfortunately I can relate to. The negatives of the movie are that the star, David Zellner, as the anti-hero is not altogether likable partially due to his vengeance against a local sex offender --- whom he believes ran over his cat with his car. Then the sex offender, played by the other Zellner, is partially disabled but the main character doesn't let up on his torture upon him. Sometimes the movie is bittersweet, but also very dark in it's portrayal of an every-day man who is down on his luck. In a way I kind of feel nit-picky about his treatment of the disabled sex offender, but I just think they went to far with this thinking that it might be funny(but it wasn't). I liked the slow non-Hollywood pacing to the story(letting it unfold before your eyes instead of throwing it at you) shot by the director in a kind of home movie fashion, and would like to see another film by this duo, but I just think they should have been a little more tactful in their approach toward the sex offender. This man, with so much affection for his cat seemed to not be able to carry that kind of affection for people in his life, and I guess that's why his marriage failed and maybe that was the point of the moviebut this wasn't made very well, in my opinion. Nice try, and will be looking for the next hoping this duo learned something.
