Reinventing
4 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a different kind of film than most big dramas, and is likely to be remembered as the director's quiet, breakthrough indie film that is more widely appreciated as the years go on, and his work is more widely recognized. . But if anything, it is a powerful demonstration of true range, and a hint at the great works that are yet in his future.

Kevin Pinassi is quite good when he's within his element though, really shines when he interacts with costar Rachel Marie Lewis or when he is left to be the focus on screen, which occurs multiple times in the film. Marcel Torres, who plays the best friend, does an OK job being the comic relief, however it never feels forced, which is a breath of fresh air.

Carlson has taken the extraordinary risk of handcrafting a film specifically to showcase the unique talent of his cast, revolving it around characters that absolutely no one else could pull off. The risk has paid off marvelously. This film extracts the best performances of any indie film I've seen in recent time, while drawing us in with an odd - and oddly touching - romantic tragedy. A delight to watch.
