Storyline

Ethan (Joe Swanberg) is a director who aims to make meaningful art films, but is struggling with a creative slump and disengagement with his work. His girlfriend Claire (Kate Lyn Sheil), is an actress whose career is beginning to take off. She has accepted the lead part in a werewolf movie being directed by talented young horror filmmaker Ben (Ti West). Ethan's depression leads to jealousy over both Claire's success and her increasingly close relationship with Ben. Ethan decides to retaliate against Claire by casting her best friend Charlie (Amy Seimetz) in a romantic role opposite himself in his new film. As pettiness and jealousy spiral out of control within their relationship, Claire begins to slip into a surreal fantasy world that more closely mirrors her role in the werewolf film than that of her real life. Largely improvised Silver Bullets draws inspiration from Chekhov 's The Seagull and Roman Polanski's Bitter Moon, while using David Foster Wallace as a reference point to ... Written by Anonymous

I Want My Money/Time Back
17 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You don't have to worry about me writing a spoiler in this review. There is nothing to spoil. I rented this movie based on three glowing reviews - of whom, if I had the time, I would write to and personally to complain. But, I rented it and here is my review:

The main characters are, in my opinion, the three hipster friends that decided to make this movie. Meaning I doubt little work went into finding actors outside their local dive bar. In this movie, the two male actors are directors - one with an ego and one that can be described as wanting an ego but not confident enough to have one - quite yet. The female actor is a shy, quiet cute girl with no personality who loves her hair. Since I do not know any of these actors in person, nor have I ever seen an interview, the boring, monotone delivery of lines may be what they were going for.

The shy director and the young girl are boyfriend/girlfriend. She gets a role working for the egotistical director. This causes tension. And I won't go any further than that in the description, as I am a sadist and would prefer you to witness the story (lack of story) unfold for yourselves.

I found myself feeling trapped at a loft in Brooklyn with young faces with beards and pretty girls with no personalities but pretty features. This movie made me wonder how movies are picked up and distributed. I am sure the actor, director, or producer was friends with the three reviewers that gave the movie such great reviews.

If you decide to watch this, I suggest you sucker a friend into renting it on their dime and you offer to bring the beers.
