Erik Peter Carlon's "Transatlantic Coffee" is nothing shy of original
27 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's a breath of fresh air to see a different approach from a young filmmaker. Carlson has made a movie that you'd not expect from a first time writer and director. It's put together with slow scenes, long takes and very few cut aways. It explores themes and ideas that I could easily see being cut away on the editing room floor if it was handled by a studio. Because of it's love budget roots, I can only believe that Carlson called the shots. There's no other way that many of these scenes would have ever made it otherwise. Studios are not this brave.

Rachel Marie Lewis plays a young gal who comes to New York from London on a blind date to meet our main character, Alex, who is played by Kevin Pinassi. Both actors do a stellar job in creating the right atmosphere. The challenge for these actors clearly must've been Carlson's directing style. Scenes sometimes last for minutes on end without any cuts, creating an almost stage play feel. In fact, I could easily see this being adapted to an off Broadway play.

One of my favorite things about this picture is the original score. Again, it is completely unexpected like everything else in the film. It's truly dreamy and assists the overall feel of the picture in conjunction with the photography, the performances and the writing.

The film runs 104 minutes which seem to go by pretty quickly, with only a few times I feel it could've been a little faster paced, however, I think if this was the case, we would loose the character study that Carlson was trying to produce, and succeeded at accomplishing.

The film reminded me very much of a European film, with it's massive amount of talking heads and simple, yet very effective direction. I also believe this was accompanied by the art direction and costume design, which made me feel I was watching something that was either a period piece or a French film from the 70's that slipped through my fingers.

I really hope the film goes wide so others can experience this film. I believe that whether you like it or not, you'll walk away with something to talk about. It really sticks with you for days. I can't wait to see what these guys come up with next. A must see!
