Has Nothing to Do With Abraham Lincoln
14 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the 1950s, a group of young men meet in a basement to discuss one of their latest sexual exploits. The scene soon shifts once one of the men, who appears to be the leader, reveals that he has found his mother's marijuana. Then things get interesting.

Writer-directors Ian Albetski and Paul Busetti deliver another quality Ten Sundays production. From the very beginning, the viewer is treated to the finest in low-budget film-making. The creators successfully emulate the look and feel of school film strips, which some of us remember all too clearly.

The cast is excellent, and have a very natural acting ability, fitting into their roles well. The outtakes make the difference between their on-screen selves and real selves clear. This, of course, only further emphasizes the acting chops of those involved.

The visuals were good -- maybe too good at times -- and the story was interesting and different. I'm a bit unclear about the Abraham Lincoln connection (there's one quotation from him, but beyond that no real Lincoln presence). But, given the humorous and satirical nature of the film, I shouldn't wonder too much.

My only real concern was the inclusion of the abortion segment of the film. Not that I didn't like it -- I did -- but that it didn't really fit so well with the theme of the movie and I felt it broke up the flow. What may have been better would be to have made it a bonus feature on the DVD. That way it could be enjoyed and the film would run smoothly. (The disc, by the way, is crammed with special features if you're interested in commentary tracks, which I am.)

While I personally enjoyed "Cannibal Cheerleader Camp" more, Ten Sundays seems to be an up and coming production company bringing viewers fresh new ideas with top shelf quality at rail prices. Albetski and Busetti have a bright future in the world of film.
