Pretty good
16 December 2013 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

The reason why I sat down and watched this is because I always like seeing relatively unknown or independent filmmakers or even ones just starting out. I always find it interesting seeing what they can do. I did stumble upon this by accident but when I found out what it was - knowing nothing about the next 15 minutes - I decided to take a look.

The plot of this movie is that a woman decides to rob convenience stores wearing clown make-up. Once she loses her wallet at one of the scenes the clerk becomes convinced it was her. The detective investigating it brings the wallet to her and asks if she saw anyone and she makes up the allibi that she bumped into the robber and took the wallet. She then does it more while the clerk becomes more and more obsessed with finding out where she is.

If there is ANYTHING to bring down against this film is that for the first third of the film, it is used to set up character - yes but there is no dialogue. I mistook it for some kind of art-house short at first but then again - I'm kind of nitpicking with this.

Everything else however is pretty well done. The acting was surprisingly good, the directing was spot on and I do like how this movie looks. I will definitely be seeing more Tara Alexis work because if this is any indicator - there is some talent behind this.

I'd say find this and watch it. Tara Alexis has posted this on YouTube (along with her other work as a director) and this is worth a watch. Even if you don't like it this is only about 15 minutes long. So I'd say go see it.
