Sun Don't Shine - great story about a bad time.

one of the things that keeps the independent filmmaking scene respectable is the fact that someone can take an idea and put it directly onto the screen. there's little to no outside influence dictating the story and ideas someone wants to share with other people. Amy Seimetz's Sun Don't Shine truly feels like that type of film.

for me personally, i enjoy watching movies from time to time that don't necessarily follow the standard in the film storytelling equation: dilemma- turns to solution- turns to ending. this is the kind of story where you don't really have any idea how it's going to end up. in fact, you don't really want it to precisely end in any certain way. leaving you still thinking about the story continuing after the physical film is over.

it reminds me of overhearing a conversation between strangers passing you on the street. you missed the setup of what's going on, but you happen to catch the peak of the story where things go terribly wrong for people you will never know. you hear just enough of certain details that sets your mind wondering what the before and after could have been. eventually finding yourself mapping out your own scenario(s). it doesn't matter if they're good or bad, that brief moment sticks with you long afterward.

i thought Sun Don't Shine was fantastic. it's not something i would run to everyone i know and tell them to stop what they're doing and watch this movie. typically, movies that appeal to the masses are the ones that have less of a personal feel to them. this is something that would appeal to people who enjoy a glimpse of how things are for strangers regardless of familiarity to the story. and it's that type of freedom in independent filmmaking that always makes for a good movie.
