Experience the journey into real life
2 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Following this filmmaker from his first debut Welcome to Pine Hill. Five Star is his second feature, and it feels more mature and consistent sharp and clear in both concept and execution. The camera work takes you to the point of no return, evaporating borders between realities of true documentary style and narrative told with the language of real life. Filmed with first time actors, Director takes an advantage of true life experiences which captured by his camera. The camera just dives in and makes the film look more real than scripted. I watched this film on a big screen at TriBeCa FF at the sold out event last year, and I left the theater with the sense of deep satisfaction from what I had saw. Loved the film, and I would recommend it to the audience.
