Strong elements and a lot of potential
1 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ambiance, great pacing, cinematography, and music all working to be a deliberate, intelligent, and meticulous film with a dark humor that just barely underscores the inherent tragic quality of the characters and story. There are scenes that coalesce to achieve this effect nicely, and there are other scenes that are still pushing to find their voice. But that's okay with me, because the sum effect for me as a film lover is to be curious enough for the filmmaker's subsequent film to resolve some of the loose ends in the plot and script that must undoubtedly happen with any independently funded first feature. I'd like to see a story without Christian mythology as its impetus; it's too easy (and overused) a plot vehicle IMO. With the potential already here, I'd like to see a story unencumbered by this. And..... I'd like to see the next film pass the Bechdel test for female presence in the film industry. Some of my favorite films unfortunately don't, but the more intelligent films like this one address this epidemic, the better. Overall, some strong elements and a lot of potential!
