Unfinished
8 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The title says it all. I thought the movie looked interesting which is why I watched it. After all, I know a lot of people in his situation (not that far off myself) so I was at least hoping for some familiarity feels especially since Billy Joe's in the movie so he'd bring the role some realism.

Most of the movie, although there are things I would have done differently, I was enjoying myself and it seemed like it was heading a good direction. Then it just stopped. Done... roll credits. There were all sorts of possibilities and various situations that were prepped for exploration all left unsatisfied.

If I want to watch someone be cranky about their 40th birthday while bemoaning the rock star life they could have had, I have plenty of real life friends to watch do that. A movie I expect to at least shove me through the Premise > Conflict > Resolution cycle... you know 3 acts.. blah blah blah. This one left me with 2/3 and I truly felt empty at the end denied the 1/3 of the movie they were too lazy to shoot. Of course given the apathetic, slacker demeanor they overplayed in Billy Joe's character, maybe that was the intention? "Just like the main character we're too apathetic to finish anything we start."

Anyway... boo. Directors Cut? You can shoot it and polish it now and we can all come back and watch the extended edition a year from now! ;-)
