Messing with the status quo, 12 April 2014
Author: OJT from Norway

God don't make the laws is also called "Frozen moment" in some markets is a strange little indie movie from American first time feature director David Sabbath.

Hawk Kodiak gets out of correctional detention and off the bus in small town Rockwell where he is to get a job, under the supervision of a burger shop owner Eddie. A town where American football count, basketball doesn't. He doesn't fit in, walking around with an "illegal" basketball, and doesn't know the "social codes" The police chief in town is also the football coach, and the maker of the laws "around here", and threatens the newcomer, to make him go away. it seem's like time has been standing still. A young girl tells this story after being caught up by men in black suits after years trying to hold them on distance. This is the start of the film, which in more than one way is quite mystical.

A strange film it is. Some interesting moments, but also sometimes very clichéd. Acting is good from some, others aren't that up to it, but still there some talent both from the film maker as well as in some of the young actors. The "retard"is not always very believable. From time to time the dialog in the film is a bit lame.

Quite annoying choice of songs in the film score makes you think there is some religious twist to it, a fear that is without any hold. A couple of other cuts are great, and suits well. However, the whole time the amateurish acting ruins the film. The idea is not so bad, but the execution is not top notch. If you can see past this, a slow burning story, you might have an OK time watching the movie.
