Storyline

In the idyllic suburban dystopia of Orange, the affable but clueless Paul agrees to be a drug courier for Mr. Ball who's about to take delivery of a drug rumored to be "more addictive than air." Against the better judgment of his best friend D., Paul does the deal for quick cash, but the supplier turns on him and murders D. in the ensuing shootout. Paul goes on the lam with the cash and the stash, but only after promising his dying friend that he'll flush it before Ball puts them in the street. Now, on the run, Paul meets the lonely, beautiful Anne with whom he indulges in the drug. They discover its curious effects, each becoming leery of the other even as they are falling in love. The fallout from the binge and the arrival of one of Ball's vengeful colleagues ultimately forces the couple to confront their demons. Take a trip to the Real Los Angeles, a place where the shimmering exterior conceals a drug culture hungrily awaiting the next new thing. Written by Rene

Visually Spectacular Film
1 March 2005 | by henryhenry614See all my reviews

The Price of Air if a very moving film.

It keeps you on the edge of your seat waiting to see if Paul and Anne are going to get away from the distributors of "Blue". "Blue" is the driving force of the action and is stunning to see how many would kill to get their hands on it.

Shooting this movie on video allowed Josh to tell the story visually. Setting moods with color and contrast draws the viewer in to appreciate a great movie.

Opening the movie with the ending adds some very creative editing. Editing that does not let you down the entire movie. Once you feel like you are getting comfortable with the flow the timing changes and so does the mood.

Overall it is a wonderful film that should be seen by all.
