Alienation never looked so good
2 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just finished watching this film at the Arizona Underground Film Festival. I must admit that I was hoping to dislike this film so that I could leave, but the film won me over. Zack Clark (along with Melodie Sisk's bravura performance) has managed to do something that would seem almost impossible; he's created an engaging film about modern alienation. By deftly juxtaposing the eternally apathetic Lorraine (Melodie Sisk) to her overly outgoing roommate Adrian (Maggie Ross), Clark brings an odd balance that allows the audience to connect to the film. Both girls long for a connection but reach for it in drastically different ways. Lorraine's approach allows her to still remain guarded while empowering her in a world where she has little control. Adrian's approach is reckless as she attempts a connection with every new person that she meets. I will say little else about the plot, but it is inventive and its presentation is original. The film does lag from time to time under the weight of its own emotional inertia. Some scenes develop slowly with little payoff. That being said, the world of film needs more artist like Mr. Clark. He has created something wholly unique, uncompromising, and interesting. The amalgam of seemingly disparate elements combine to create something greater than the sum of their parts. That something is becoming more rare with each passing film.
