Unforgivably Amateur
1 January 2010 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

What was billed as a chilling portrait into a lethal drug instead shows us a novice filmmaker who is addicted to cross dissolves. This movie is poorly conceived, poorly shot, and edited like a first year student project. The subject matter deserves much, much better.

Pacing is dreadfully slow, editing is alternately clunky and sometimes nonexistent to the point that it feels like the movie forgets anyone is trying to watch it. Long, unedited interview clips try your patience as shot after shot just dissolve into the next. No artistry. No sense of storytelling. Some absolutely ridiculous ECU framing on interview subjects. Rookie mistakes, like poorly placed microphones picking up shirt noise and staging interviews next to what sound like busy highways. No connective logic between segments. The filmmaker also unnecessarily inserts himself into the project on numerous occasions, which only serves to provide the viewer with a face to blame.

I'm an avid documentary watcher and believe that the meth epidemic in this country needs to be addressed. This is well intentioned but poorly executed, and I'm not sorry to say that I turned it off after 45 minutes.
