Best of MethodFest
29 March 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Just saw this incredibly dynamic, kinetically charged film at MethodFest and it really shook me up. Perhaps partly because I aspire to this level of film-making, perhaps partly because it's one of the most honest, gripping and fiercely performed films I've seen in years -- I just lost myself in its tonal poetry, sexual urgency and cathartic danger.

Ry Russo-Young was not only able to assemble a sparkling, freshly defiant cast -- but make what I would call a "complete" film --- the type of film that can only be created by a unique filmmaker with a strong, singular vision. The bombastic ride she takes us with with her lead actress (Stella Schnabel in a gut-wrenching, breakout performance) is like a tapestry of love, sex, deceit, failure and life.... always life, brimming on the streets of New York, in the audition rooms of pretentious theatre directors, in the heartbreak of a girl so sure of herself, she can't realize how broken she very well might be. See it, request it, watch it. WPS
