Best film nobody's ever seen... soon to be cult fav
Most of the expressions other reviewers have used sound kinda cliché, but this is the real deal, it is an indie masterpiece.
I found this DVD by accident at Circuit City, of all places, the box caught my attention and it was something like 7 bucks, so i said what the heck, plus i have a fascination with vampire flicks. I was FLOORED at how good this was. It is a very metaphorical and existential picture, but SOOOO realistic, thus so beautiful and painful. Scary, creepy, haunting and heartbreaking, without being a melodrama.
The DVD extras are also some of the best i've ever seen, no joke. The making off and how you see Larry pulling this off with no money, just guts, passion and instinct is better than wasting time at film school. And his thoughts about the importance of indie film-making staying independent are so true. It's really tragic that this hasn't been seen by many people. I've owned this DVD for about 6 years now, and show it to people whenever i get a chance, and its always the same reaction, everybody's jaws just drop at how powerful and unique this film is.
The whole cast is perfect, but Larry himself is a stand out and such a gut-wrenching performance. I understand why there are some people that didn't like this, i don't agree but this is a very personal picture, and i think most of the people that just fall head over heels over HABIT, including myself, connect to it in such a personal way because we see ourselves in Sam and his relationships, or in his friends who have seen our friends go through a downward spiral. Beer for breakfast? That's not a joke or some eccentric stereotype, it screams out about something else, just like everything else in the film, not a frame or second is wasted.
Check my profile, i have never commented on a film, and don't think i will, but HABIT is just mind blowingly gorgeous and incredible, and like nothing i've ever seen before, and sadly, probably never will. If you haven't seen this, do yourself a favor and find this.
(P.S. small commercial, there is one other film that i sort-of feel the same way about, if you get a chance, check out "Kontroll", also perfect and unlike anything you've ever seen).
