A real life Auter
14 June 2003 | by ktonefilmSee all my reviews

In a society full of people eager to pay $9.00 on a Friday night to see a film that has no more depth than the daily routine they live, the movie 12 is a nice break in tradition. We all know how few Auter's their really are in our studio, bottom-line driven, filmmaking system. Personally, I think Larry Bridges and his extremely committed cast and crew came up with an amazing film for such a low budget and stringent resources. The fact that Larry Bridges continues to believe in his film, though he has been turned down by distributors for years, shows what perserverance and faith he has in the story that he is telling. Not to mention the actors' unfailing commitment over at least a 12 year period. One real test to tell whether a film is worth something is whether you like it the second, third, fourth, or tenth time you have seen it. Not only do I like this film after seeing it for the third time, I enjoy it more each time I see it. I recommend this movie to anybody who appreciates the art of filmmaking. Not to mention, you can see it for free any Saturday night in a parking lot, on a wall, somewhere in L.A.. The experience alone is worth trying.
