No idea how this film made it to Sundance 11
23 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie had a message but it could have been told in 20 minutes vs 72. Long inane clips that did not add to the story. Editing was disparately needed.

A story of a sad newly 40 male with a pathetic, lonely, boring life. He falls into a male fantasy weekend which was a great story poorly told.

Filmed apparently on a FlipCam the camera movement almost made me sick at times. I love that a film could be made on a FlipCam. Regrettably, the lighting was at times so poor you could not make out the actors faces. Also because of the low resolution the film was pixelated on the large screen. I have no idea why this film made the cut for Sundance. I watched it with my wife at 10pm during the Sundance Film Festival. We should have gone to bed and skipped the trek from Park City to the Red Stone Theater at that late hour. My wife is still angry at me for making her sit through it.

Maybe I missed something artful or profound....if so it was well hidden. I hope so because someone put in a lot of effort and hope in making this film.
