Angst of Creation
15 March 2009 | by (Montreal) – See all my reviews

A movie about artistic creation, friendship, heartbreak, and the circle of life. As a fan of the Colocs, I was able to overcome some bad editing in the first half, and some overall scripting problems. The final effect is that of a great story about yet another doomed idealist artist. What really stood out for me was the very above average performances of the three main actors Dédé, Pat and Mike. The acting performances were eerily good.

As we are moved back in forth in time from recordings of the last album to flashbacks of the band's first years, we are permitted to enter the realm of creation and the emotions driving the written word.

I'm not sure non Coloc fans will enjoy the long bits, and technically the film could have been better. But it is a story that is worth telling, about people who live their dreams, albeit for too short a time.
