Review for Autopilot
29 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The film Autopilot was recommended to me on amazon.com, and I have to say it really surpasses the typical Indie fare. The lead (played by Alex Knudsen) plays Tanner, a troubled man having just being released from a mental institution, that he has been in since childhood. He convincingly plays a grown man that had his social development skills stunted, and trying to make sense of this new world he's been released into. He's somewhat able to come out of his shell around his sister Sara (played by Shannon Lucio) who takes him in and tries to re-adapt him into society. I don't want to give any more away when it comes to story and how it ends, but let's just say it is dark, and dream-like.

Check out the hilarious making-of featurette, the outtakes, and the commentary track.

The guy playing Tanner is largely unknown, but you'll likely recognize the rest of the cast since they have had supporting roles in film and TV (for instance Gregory Itzin, who played President Logan on '24').
