Quotes

Adrian: It's come to my attention that some editorial decisions have started being made without my awareness or approval. At some point, and I'm not sure when, you guys all sort of ganged up, turned on me, and abandoned my vision for this film. I think it's shitty, I think it's immoral, and at this point I'd like to just take the footage and go home, please.

Great buddy picture
5 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just saw this at the Traverse City Film Festival.

It was the best fiction film there – very funny, fresh dialog, and tightly edited. Alex Karpovsky plays the central character, and is a great new (to me) talent. He and Tarik Lowe (also co-writer with director Daniel Schecter) have a chemistry that compares well with the greats.

While it's ideal for people who love the movie-making process, anyone will like this. The guys are co-editors of an independent film, trying to save it while the director works out his neuroses mostly off-screen. (Kevin Corrigan seems -- based on his post-screening appearance -- more than a bit nuttier in real life than his character.)

Really hope it gets distribution.
