Daring material for directorial debut
30 November 2004 | by See all my reviews

Were there imperfections in screening quality? Yes, there were. Is this film shocking, daring, or even offensive to some? Yes - ask the people who walked out of Sundance screenings.

How has Spokane been received? My fellow actor and I received Best Actor nods from the One Reel Film Festival this year (2004). Also, Larry Kennar's film was Honorable Mention at Sundance 2004. These people and institutions know their films as they see so many of them.

That being said, if a person dislikes messages due to the messenger, then disliking Spokane due to technical elements is understandable - some tend to throw the baby out with the bath water.

What does it say, this movie? For me, it seems to be an indication of the isolated nature of society. The prevalent condition for humanity is isolation and any other condition requires investment of self, not satisfaction of self. Even the most intimate situations between humans does not a communion make if the intention is to sublimate what is going on in one's head, heart or genitalia.

Looking past the technical imperfections, this is the mirror of Spokane reflecting back at our time and species. Bold, daring and worth a viewing - most definitely a powerful 30-minute short film.
