Normal is hard to do
11 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember when a friend once showed me his completed movie having spent over a £100,000 on it and he was stunned when I pointed out a couple of scenes (the end) that appeared tacked on (i.e. the beginning doesn't lead to any end). He wasn't stunned that I pointed it out, he was stunned that the 35 people who worked on the film never gave any such feedback. My heart goes out to the writer and director of this feature who were probably encouraged by well meaning folks who didn't have the heart to tell them to do another five re-writes before committing so many people to producing a failure. Young film makers like these might want to look at the work of avant-garde theatre or agile software development both who regularly pilot their work in front of audiences way before any commitment has been made in terms of work.

Life Just Is concerns itself with a group of twenty-somethings day to day goings on over a period of a week. Being a film about our existence as it ' just is' any significant plot, conflict, premise or story have no place on here. The title, as printed on your movie ticket, can be completed with whatever comes to mind as actors move from couches to kitchens to bedrooms having chats together. At the surface 'Life as It Is' seems to present the banal in a mundane way. Going deeper, it presents the significant relationships we have with people we know very little about in a mundane way. Beneath that, if one was to plumb the depths one would find a deep lesson in writing.
