Unpredictable thriller with a heart! Not what we expected
23 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My boyfriend and I caught STRINGS at the Long Island Film Expo a couple weeks ago and have been talking about it ever since. There's something about this movie that sits with you for a while, kind of like Memento and the Salton Sea. Maybe it's the heavily-tattooed protagonist being soft-spoken and having women issues in all three of them :) It didn't feel like an independent movie at all, the pacing and production quality were Hollywood caliber and the story was something that, for the first time in years, my boyfriend said "I've never seen a movie like that"....I wish we could buy a DVD! We've told all our friends about it and getting to meet the talented filmmakers was such a great experience. The cast was incredible, the story was incredible, the directing was incredible, I can't say enough good things about this movie. If the STRINGS people are reading this, thank you for making my boyfriend cry!
