Storyline

Robert Longfellow is a playwright whose latest play in New York City has just bombed while his marriage is in no better shape. Seeking an escape, he travels back to Los Angeles to visit his mother, meet a dear secret girlfriend and decide on new writing opportunities. However, everything changes when his brutish childhood neighbor, Gus, takes Robert hostage with the police surrounding the house. In this situation, the strained conversations inside drift to Robert's profession and the nature of creative writing. To placate Gus, Robert introduces him to improvisational dialogue and the pair engage in some dramatic exercises. However as they perform, the material becomes more personal as the trapped pair confront each other with hard truths that will leave neither of them unscathed.

A film for everyone with many unsuspecting turns.
19 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had the opportunity to see Collaborator at the Newport Beach International Film Festival and the New York City premiere. It's a thrilling movie that takes the viewer on a roller-coaster ride of unexpected turns. From politics, to fidelity, to war, to crime and seeing the explosive interaction between two very opposite individuals there is surely to be some portion of Collaborator which makes you laugh, become angry, and feel empathy towards the characters. A well thought out and executed film with a highly climactic ending that I enjoyed immensely. David Morse's character is executed very well and by the end of the film, I couldn't help but to feel quite sad for the life which he's led. If you have the opportunity, I'd highly recommend it.
