"Fake Film"? Certainly Not!
4 March 2009 | by See all my reviews

Several people on and off of this website have deemed this film as a "fake film" or a "false adaptation." As absurd as the concept inarguably is, I find "The Catcher in the Rye" to be a "real film" in the most true cinematic form. What the absurdist artist Nigel Tomm has presented is an adaptation that is entirely of the viewer's own. Within 75 minutes and 6 seconds, he or she is given the opportunity to envision the otherwise impossible. I myself do not enjoy Salinger's eminent novel, but I do still understand that so many have pondered (regardless of opinion) about what could have been, had the author allowed so. With this film, Tomm shatters boundaries and limitations, all the while unlocking the key to your long as you are willing to watch pure blue screen upon your journey. As a filmmaker and a director, Nigel Tomm is imaginative in more manners than one. He is not only "imaginative" as in "creative," but also "imaginative" as in "emphasizing upon the importance of imagination." "The Catcher in the Rye," as well as Tomm's other films, roars a statement against everything that anyone has ever known about movies. When movies are conventionally shown to us, more often than not, our imaginations are limited. Such is never the case when watching these 75 minutes and 6 seconds of pure blue screen. Nothing less and nothing more.
