MINIMAL MATTER TO DIGEST HERE.
24 November 2001 | by rsoonsaSee all my reviews

Canadian Charles Wilkinson, who wrote and directed this banal affair, seems inadequately prepared to handle his subject: autocratic control of a populace, as a feature film. Made in British Columbia with a Canadian cast, some of whom have done good work elsewhither, this piece stars Beatrice Boepple (who, after a short stint in cinema, blessedly chose a career change) as a rebel against the system who nearly single-handedly routs a governmental conspiracy. Cinematographer Tobias Schliessler attempts to make some scenes interesting but the script is so jumbled and inane that one immediately wishes for events to move along toward some sort of conclusion. Despite a narrow operating budget, the writer/director attempts to graft a surfeit of sub-plots onto an already shallow point of view, with predictable results. Awkward usage of extras and stunt personnel seals the fate of any movement to achieve narrative flow, and one cannot help but wonder about what sort of film was intended to be made.
