3/10. Terrible acting and insulting/unintelligent editing directing and music.
I watched this movie cold and thought I had downloaded a corrupt file. This movie is insulting in the delivery of its premise to the viewer. There is no subtlety in the delivery of plot points. The kids in my 8th grade theater class had better more innovative directing styles. The music at many points was erratic and completely out of place. There were a couple of actors in this film that sounded like they belonged in a porno, or on cable access. Overall the main actor was convincing as a mentally ill aspiring actor but his portrayal of protagonist was lacking in depth.
This is not a normal film and will likely not appeal to majority of potential viewers, but that doesn't mean it is a bad film. It is a bad film because the director is either inexperienced, unorganized or underfunded. The production of an above average film school project with the editing of a 10th grade film assignment and the acting of a 5th grade thanksgiving play does not make a good indie film, even if you dress a few characters up in tweed and have a lot of quick cuts.
delete delete delete this film will have you wondering more about its choices in production than its own substance. also, it is labeled as a thriller but the only twist is completely obvious from the get.
