Humorous with some surprises
15 September 2010 | by (ny,ny) – See all my reviews

This mockumentary (in the tradition of Waiting for Guffman, Dog Show and other Christopher Guest films) covers the buildup and excitement within a small fictional, sleepy NJ town of participants competing in a local poetry slam. It is a humorous look at the world of slam poetry (poking fun at some of its sometimes all-too-serious attitudes) and also portrays the different angles and approaches taken by our collection of "misfit" protagonists. I only call them "misfits" because these aspiring, small-town poets don't necessarily fit the image of a slam poet that you'd see on HBO Def Poetry.

I was surprised at caring for some of the characters by the end of the film, even though it is a short film. The film is able to sprinkle in some surprisingly intimate looks at some of the characters and their motivations.

A pleasant and funny film I can recommend!
