Where I Begin (2011)
All I Can Say Is Wow - Where I Begin Made A Huge Impact On Me
I am not a film critic or have never written a review, but as part of one of my classes at the university I was forced to go and see Where I Begin.
I was hesitant at first and did not want to go to the screening, as in general I am not a fan of independent film. And at the end of the day I was extremely blessed to have been able to see an early screening of this movie.
The movie pulled me in form the very beginning. The characters, the story, the beauty and pain of everything that is Where I Begin is captivating and breathtaking.
I was actually moved to tears and cried in front of my girlfriend for the first time , which was a little embarrassing to say the least.
If you have any emotions, or know what it is like to go through family problems, or just have a simple loving bone in your body, the movie will take its toll on you emotionally.
I have thought about this movie since I watched it and am dying to see it again.
I was fortunate enough to be able to talk to the director Thomas L. Phillips and get some of his insight on the film. He has so much passion and love for what he does and for Where I Begin in general, that you can see it and feel it in him when he discusses it.
The performances are just outstanding, and I did not recognize anyone of them, but I know that each and everyone of them could be known in the film world one day, that is how strong each and everyone of them are.
The movie is perfectly pieced together and told effortlessly. Everything unfolds right in front of you and you do not want to turn away.
If you get the opportunity to see Where I Begin, I highly recommend that you do so.
Earl's Your Uncle (2004)
Just watched this movie over at Movies Askew. It actually just won the fourth round of their contest. It competed against five other films and received the most votes. Since it won the fourth round it gets put on a DVD of short films to be released.
The movie was hilarious and original. The movie was dark and black and white, which made it all the more visual. I do not know that much about making movies, but this one seemed well done to me.
You never get to see short films, except at festival, well you get to see some on IFC and The Sundance Channel, but I think that this is good that people will be able to see this film on DVD.
I got to check out the website and saw that it has played quite a few festivals and has even won some awards. I can see why this film has been playing festivals and winning awards.
If you get a chance to check it out, then do so. I highly recommend it.
