Storyline

A gritty, exposed visual poem, set to the not so nice sides of Los Angeles. In a town all about making it, this film examines the toll dreamers often find themselves paying when they first arrive in Hollywood, it asks the questions outsiders often ask, and dares to expose the industry's true colors. Inspired by mainstream pop culture, lonely visits to tourist attractions, not knowing which way to go, and the death of my grandfather, this short film (a combination of high paced, rapid Spoken Word, juxtaposed on screen text, and intense visuals) is sure to stand out and become one of next season's festival favorites.

Difficult to finish watching...
29 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

This short film is both confusing and profoundly not profound. The spoken word narrative is more or less a collection of mindless vague questions. The random video shots rarely pair nicely with the narrative. I am not sure if the occasional audio problems/irregularities are on purpose, but they do not come across as artistic. The 18 second shot of a white wall that fades into a brick wall was frustrating to watch. The overall theme of how difficult it is to live in LA is lost because of how poorly the movie is written. The scenes with the "Devil" character are what I would expect from a horror movie made by a high school student. Looking back on this film, I cannot find one redeeming quality. Even the credits were poorly done. The producer's name was listed several times in both the opening and closing credits. This is a short film that you should skip out on watching.
