I attended the sold out World Premiere showing of Neverlost at this year's (2010) Fantasia International Film Festival - feels pretty neat to be able to say I was one of the very first people to see a film ; anyway, I'm derailing myself here...
For a film with a small budget, coming out of Guelph, Canada - I must say I was very surprised by Neverlost. Picture quality was great and for the most part, so was the acting. The story was interesting with a couple of slower moments... the audio though had not yet been fully mastered at the time of viewing (as per the director himself, who was on hand with cast and crew for a Q&A following the film) but the only real issue with the sound was that some things were a lot louder than they should have been (which will be fixed by the time it hits cinemas/DVD I'm sure) The basic story is of a man who's love life has been dragged through the bushes backwards and is now the source of his insomnia. Married but still pinning for the "one that got away", the film quickly moves into bizare territory that leaves it's audience split by two story arcs and unsure which ones is real and which is dream. As the story unfolds, more and more plot is tied together and twisted up again... although it is fairly predictable in parts.
It's really nice to see such good films coming out of Canada!
