An intriguging, sumptuous thriller -- a true genre-bending indie that will stick in your mind for days
I was lucky enough to catch this film recently at the Downtown Los Angeles Film Festival (my neighborhood film festival). I wasn't sure what to expect as Indie films can be a mixed bag -- it can inspire or it can make you to cringe. I was very pleased to discover that DARK HEARTS was not only the former, but its actually a TRUE indie in the sense that it goes into darker and more boundary pushing places than most of what we see around us these days. I was immediately intrigued. Those looking for a simple, entertaining crowd-pleaser would be disappointed. But despite its dark premise, this is not a film that satisfies itself with being a mindless, violent blood-fest. Instead, Dark Hearts is cool, sexy, complex and artistic with just a touch of the disturbing (I mean this in the best possible way). It shakes you up a little by challenging you to think deeper. But it is also primal, raw and honest. The production value is impressive and sumptuous - honorable mentions to its featured artwork, cinematography, costumes and music. Not to mention a good looking and very charismatic cast.
This film stayed in my mind for days. Now if only there were more films like this ....
